Personal details

BA (Hons) Oxon, PG Cert Ed (Birmingham City University), Solicitor (non-practising), PhD (Leicester)

I joined the University of Leicester as a lecturer in law in 2013. On 1 September 2014, I took up the post of Course Director for the LLM Employment Law (distance learning) course.


My research is in international and European labour law, and the conjunction between labour law and legal theory.

My current research investigates the interaction between (diplomatic and state) immunity and labour law.

In 2014, I was awarded a grant from the Association of Commonwealth Universities to present my research to an international audience at HEC Montreal, Canada. I also conduct peer reviews for the E-Journal of International and Comparative Labour Studies.


I am happy to supervise doctoral projects in my field of interest, particularly European/International labour law and labour law theory.
