Hi, I’m Kevin

I’m a graduate student in the interdisciplinary program in Public Policy at Stanford University. My primary interests are in technology policy, the design of legal and regulatory institutions, and public policy communication. As an undergraduate, I studied Public Policy and Computer Science at Stanford and completed a capstone policy practicum on the role of social capital in workforce development programs.

Previously, I worked as a technology policy analyst in the Mayor’s Office of Technology and Innovation in San José, CA, and as a research intern at the Technology Policy Institute. Through the Stanford Law and Policy Lab, I have conducted policy analysis projects on eviction, conflict resolution, and net neutrality. I have also conducted qualitative research as a research assistant for the Center for Deliberative Democracy and as a summer research assistant on election redistricting with the Bill Lane Center for the American West.

I previously taught computer science through codeConnects (a program of The Coding School) and served as a teaching assistant for Stanford’s “Introduction to Public Policy”, “Economic Analysis I”, “Justice”, and “Politics and Policy in California”. I am currently co-president of the Stanford Public Policy Graduate Student Council.

Outside of academia, I enjoy volunteering for Wikipedia, where I’ve been an editor for eight years and an elected administrator for four. I am currently an elected member of Wikipedia’s Arbitration Committee, the decision-making body of final appeal for Wikipedia’s most serious disputes.
