Personal profile

Biography

 

I joined Coventry University in January 2017 as a lecturer in law, having recently submitted my PhD thesis which examined counter-terrorist hybrid orders (Control Orders, TPIMs, Temporary Exclusion Orders) and the right to a fair trial. I have published some of my research and I have presented at various conferences.

As a student I spent a significant amount of my time studying abroad. For my undergraduate degree I spent an Erasmus year at the Charles University in Prague. For my postgraduate degree I spent one semester at Columbia University in New York and another semester at the University of Amsterdam. Whilst in Amsterdam I interned for a defence counsel who practises at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

I have also benefited from some invaluable work experience in the third sector, having been a legal fellow for Rights Watch (UK), as well having worked with Peace Brigades International (UK) and the Human Rights Lawyers' Association in some capacity.

 

Research:

 

I am interested in all matters concerning human rights which have political dimensions and social implications. For my PhD I conducted a socio-legal study into the implications of counter-terrorist executive orders and the right to a fair trial, which I hope to build upon in the coming years. More recently I have been exploring contemporary challenges to the rights of political participation such as free speech on university campuses and the right to vote.

 

Area of Expertise:

  • Rights of political participation
  • Domestic counter-terrorism law and policy
  • Domestic and international human rights law
