excites you most about joining the new law school faculty?
We have a unique opportunity to develop a program that will bring law students and faculty to a university eager to participate in a multidisciplinary scholarship that includes legal issues and methodology. As a founding faculty of the law school, I am particularly excited about contributing to continued interactions across campus.
Describe your scholarship,
or a favorite pro bono or service project.
My research is in innovation policy, with an emphasis on energy. I use economic and political models to analyze how political and economic institutions affect technological innovation. My work overlaps with issues in administrative law and intellectual property, as well as formal modeling of judicial and political institutions. I also try to bring these models to bear on policy debates, most recently participating in the National Research Council’s Panel on Energy Efficiency, part of the NRC Project on America’s Energy Future.
What are you the most
excited about doing in the first years of the law school?
Participating in recruiting new faculty and students, and working on establishing joint programs for students in Law and Social Sciences.
