About My Work
My work develops an economic dynamic approach to law, which focuses on the shape of change over time rather than static efficiency. It has a goal of avoiding systemic risk while keeping open a robust set of economic opportunities. It uses analysis of the bounded rationality of particular regulated groups and countervailing incentive analysis to understand how law influences conduct. I have applied this theory to environmental law, financial regulation, and other areas.
