Research in Law, Economics, and Policy


I’m the director of the Technology Policy Program at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, an adjunct professor at the George Mason University School of Law, a contributor at The Hill, and a member of the 2016 Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for Law & Policy.

My research focuses on regulation, competition, and innovation.  I primarily work on how to fix regulatory agencies with the goal making permissionless innovation the standard by which we embrace the future.  But my research also covers the sharing economy, emerging technologies, healthcare, online gambling, antitrust, and craft brewing (although I have yet to figure out how to tie them all into one project).
