2014-15 Judicial Fellow at the Federal Judicial Center
J.D. & Ph.D. Economics
As the Crandall Melvin Professor of Law and Director of the Technology Commercialization Law Program at Syracuse University College of Law, Shubha helps develop the college’s concentration in technology and intellectual property law while working with graduate students in the master’s program.
Crediting his judicial fellowship as being a crucial part of his career advancement, he said it helped him “create contacts in Washington, D.C. and refine his understanding of how scholarly work can shape policy through communication of theoretical and empirical research.”
Shubha believes the fellowship benefits academics at all career stages and may be particularly attractive for academics who are interested in bridging the gap between science and policy. For mid-career professionals, the fellowship has special potential: “It can structure a sabbatical year, allowing scholars to develop new research projects and apply mature scholarship to real world policy problems.”
