Man smiling

I have worked within the UK higher education sector since 2011 and have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2017. I have taught various LLB and LLM courses at Birkbeck, University of London and at the University of Hertfordshire (Hertfordshire Law School).

I currently teach Public Law, Legal Method and European Union Law at LSBM on a 0.5 (part-time) basis and supervise student dissertations on a number of public law and public international law subject areas. I teach/have taught Public International Law, Law of International Armed Conflict and International Space Law at other institutions.

I am a member of the Society of Legal Scholars and a PhD candidate at the University of London (Birkbeck College), where my doctoral research focuses on the concept of aggression in international law.


My main teaching and research interests lie in the fields of Public Law (especially constitutional law) and Public International Law (especially the use of force by States, international humanitarian law and space law).
