She provides interpretation and guidance for rules promulgated under Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, including subjects pertaining to entity classification, the definition of swap, margin requirements and trade documentation, as well as the prohibition on market manipulation and disruptive trading.
