PhD Candidate, The City Law School, 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 Foundations of Public Law Module. I have also previously taught on the Criminal Law and English Legal Systems modules; as well as providing guest lectures for the Law and Film module. My broader research focuses on the interaction between law and culture, with a focus on how cultural conceptions of identity interact with legal apparatus.

Prior to beginning my PhD, 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.

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.
