At the conference I presented Disentangling Technological Convergence: The Effects of Cyberspace on International Space Law.

On May 26, I visited Prof. LI Shouping’s International Law class at the Beijing Institute of Technology and spoke with students on applying to graduate programs in the United States and gave a presentation on the Use of Force under the UN framework.
