I hold an LL.B. (law and international relations) and a J.S.M from Stanford Law School. During my legal education I have served as a research and teaching assistant and a member of the editorial board of the Law Review. I clerked for Justice H. Melcer at the Supreme Court. I have studied the influence of ethnicity on the way rape cases are adjudicated by the criminal justice system. My research interests are institutional norms and responses to violence against women, and specifically how race and poverty influence those responses. More recently, I have been researching sexual harassment in the labor market and its influence on occupational sex-segregation.
