PhD Researcher, City, University of London

I am currently working on my PhD thesis entitled: Queering Refugee Law: A Study of Social Group Categorisation in the UK Asylum Apparatus. I also teach on City Law School's LLB Law programme, delivering teaching on the Criminal Law, and English Legal Systems modules.

Previously, I was awarded the Gilchrist Postgraduate prize and LLM Constitutional Law Prize for my performance on the LLM, Constitutional Politics, Law and Theory programme at Birkbeck, University of London. During my time at Birkbeck, I wrote about the relationship between rising nationalism and citizenship. I have continued to focus on the interaction of nationalism and personhood within my current research.

My main research interests include: feminist and queer approaches to legal analysis; gender and law; constitutional theory and jurisprudence; and critical approaches to criminal law.
