Clinical Instructor at Harvard Law School
Hi PfoHo! I (along with my wife Altaf and our daughter Fatema) am super excited to be a House Pfellow! I am an attorney and am currently a clinical instructor in Harvard Law School's Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program. Previously, I was a senior staff attorney at the ACLU of Southern California where I litigated immigrants’ rights cases against the Trump Administration. I have also worked at the law firm WilmerHale and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and have clerked for two federal judges.
I received my law degree from Yale Law School, and, as a Marshall Scholar, I received master’s degrees from Oxford University in legal research and from the School of Oriental and African Studies in Middle East politics. Somewhere in between, I also lived in Cairo, Egypt for a year studying Arabic and teaching journalism. I graduated from Stanford in 2003, where I received my bachelor's degree in International Relations and served as Editor-in-Chief of the Stanford Daily newspaper.
I was born and raised in Kansas City, and love all things Kansas City (fountains, bbq, the Royals, the Chiefs, etc.). I look forward to meeting you!
