http://orcid.org/0000-0002-9072-0479

I am the module leader of 3ls (Legal Skills, Legal Study, Legal Systems), run the Foundation Programme for Year 1 LLB students, teach EU law, and run a module on EU Criminal and Migration Law, run jointly with several partner universities across Europe. I was LSBU’s lead academic on the Erasmus funded strategic partnership INSPIRED in which academics from six European universities collaborated to design a MOOC on transnational criminal and migration law in Europe. I have taught with the Open University. I am a qualified Solicitor and have worked in Commercial Litigation in City law firms.

My particular interests are the English Legal System, the first year student experience, student mobility, the internationalisation of the student experience and its contribution to global citizenship, and European Law. I was LSBU’s lead academic on the Erasmus funded Key Action 2 Strategic Partnership INSPIRED in which academics from six European universities collaborated to design a MOOC on transnational criminal and migration law in Europe.In 2017 I was awarded a PhD from Birkbeck, University of London, on the contribution of Erasmus Student Mobility to EU citizenship. My thesis formed the basis of my book, Citizenship, Nation-building and Identity in the EU, which was published by Routledge in 2019.

I am an External Examiner for the University of London Worldwide LLB.

I am on the editorial board of the peer reviewed journal 'Jurisprudence' published by Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius, Lithuania.

I am a reviewer for the Journal of International Students.
