I am a Lecturer in Law within the Law Division at LSBU. Prior to joining LSBU in 2021, I was an Associate Lecturer at the School of Law, Oxford Brookes University, and a Graduate Teaching Assistant and a research-funded PhD candidate at The City Law School, City, University of London.

My research interests lie in intersections between law, race and history as explored through contemporary art and literature. In 2022, I completed the doctoral thesis, “Vanishing Points: Social Inequality and the Law in Recent American Conceptual Art and Poetry.” This was supervised by Dr Grietje Baars (City) and Professor Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos (Westminster) and was funded by The City Law School between the academic years 2017-2020.

I am a writer as well as a law researcher and teacher: I am the author of the book of essays and poetry, World of Interiors (Divided, 2022) and the poetry chapbooks NYT (Gauss, 2018) and 2016 (After Hours, 2016). In 2016, I co-edited a special issue of the interdisciplinary journal, How To Sleep Faster 7: The Body in Pain (Arcadia Missa, 2016, co-editor Rozsa Farkas).
