Kevin is a joint J.D./Ph.D. candidate at Harvard Law School and MIT in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department. At MIT, he is a member of the Internet Policy Research Initiative and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He is broadly interested in the interplay between law, technology, and society. Specifically, his research focuses on legal-technical co-design, which asks how normative jurisprudence and computer system design can help each other “get things right” towards various goals, such as safety, security, and privacy.
