About Me


I earned my PhD in Philosophy at UC Irvine (Dec. 2023), where I am also a JD candidate (May 2024).

My dissertation, "Ways to Reform the Law," is the first step in my interdisciplinary research agenda. It contains three proposals that concretely address major concerns in law: one on achieving greater fairness between unequally wealthy parties in civil litigation by changing how courts award damages, another on imposing tort liability for special cases of risk imposition without requiring the risk to materialize, and the last on justifying differential punishment in criminal law that involves rejecting the merger doctrine in criminal sentencing.

Outside law and philosophy, I like to spend my free time playing soccer or going surfing. Sometimes, I perform stand-up comedy.
