Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in Law at Coventry University. Prior to joining Coventry Law School, I undertook an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded PhD at Lancaster University Law School. My thesis was titled 'Destitution as a Denial of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: Addressing Destitution in the United Kingdom using a Human Rights Framework'. A monograph based on my thesis titled 'International Human Rights Law and Destitution: An Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Perspective' is under contract with Routledge and is expected for publication in 2022.

I hold a First Class Law LLB Honours Degree and graduated top of the LLM cohort attaining a Distinction in International Human Rights Law, both at Lancaster University Law School. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Authority (AFHEA) and, alongside teaching on 4000CLS: Legal Methods 1 and 4002CLS: Public Law, am the Module Leader for 4003CLS: Legal Methods 2. I am currently working towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice in Higher Education (PgCAPHE) which will confer Fellowship of the Higher Education Authority (FHEA).

Research Interests

Broadly, my main research interest is in International Human Rights Law. More specifically, I focus on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights. My current research considers Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights alongside destitution. This has led to some overlap into the spheres of Sustaining Peace and International Criminal Law. As well as this, I have recently been exploring the Right to Clothing. I utilise a Socio-Legal Approach to the Law and aim to integrate knowledge from a variety of disciplines into my own research.
