    I am a NextGen Fellow at the ABA Center for Innovation. I study the field of housing law, and develop software to offer effective interventions for tenants who are struggling to obtain rental housing and avoid eviction. I am always looking to connect with scholars and advocates in the housing law space, especially folks with a background in tenant screening law and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
