I joined LSBU in the Division of Law in 2020. I specialise in the effects of social movements on law and theories of justice and human rights. Previously I worked at the University of Essex, SOAS, and Birkbeck College where I gained my PhD degree in Law.

There are two separate but linked areas of my research.

In the first path, I look at human rights activists from the Global South, their understanding of human rights discourses in various countries, and how discourses of HR travel through International Law, INGOs, NGOs, and finally society. Concepts of violence, utopias, the formation of ideologies and their aesthetics, and neoliberalism play an important role in my research.

I also think about the rule of law and transparency. I try to understand the politics behind procedural rules, the history of transparency, and the digital governance of the justice system.

Finally, I work on the concept of ‘right to the city’ with a local focus. Here, I think about the relation between human rights and the global economy. This area of my research covers the relation between austerity programmes, economic policies and the concept of rights. Consequently, I try to analyse the complex relationship between the current global economic model and rights discourse.
