His junior independent work, advised by Professor Jonathan Payne, is an empirical study of the impact labor legislature induces on the economic wellbeing of specific demographics and the statute’s subsequent influence on other subpopulations. Chris has long been interested in the political economy of law and the resultant interactions between citizens, institutions, and governments. Following his undergraduate career at Princeton, he hopes to attend law school to expand on his interdisciplinary pursuits.
