Jeff earned a bachelor’s degree in physics and political science from Yale University in the spring of 2022. While living in New Haven, he served as president of the Yale Political Union –– an idiosyncratic, student-run debate society dedicated to the open exchange of ideas. He completed his senior thesis on demagoguery and the role of rhetoric throughout the history of the American presidency. He published opinion pieces in the Yale Daily News on campus free-speech culture. He also researched comparative defamation doctrines in the United States and Germany. In the coming years, Jeff plans to pursue a law degree, with a focus on constitutionalism. Finally, having grown up among the apple orchards of New Hampshire, you will often find Jeff with a well-read copy of Walden, dreaming of the mountains.
