Her article, “Exporting American Discovery,” was awarded the American Society of International Law David D. Caron Prize.

Before joining the Penn Carey Law faculty, she was a fellow and lecturer at Stanford Law School. She clerked for Judge M. Margaret McKeown on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and practiced in the litigation groups of two global law firms.
