Informal Version

I’m a computer scientist and a lawyer at Princeton. I don’t live in the ivory tower, though. My faculty appointments are in the Computer Science Department and the Woodrow Wilson School, and my office is in the Center for Information Technology Policy. Wherever technology, law, and public policy intersect, I’m interested.
