I hold a BA (Law), LLB, and LLM from the University of Johannesburg. My LLM dissertation considered the accessory principle as it applies to real security rights in South African law. I further hold an LLD from the University of South Africa. My doctoral thesis was a comparative study to consider aspects of traditional securitisation in South African law.
I have been a legal academic for 17 years and have taught before at the University of South Africa, the University of the Witwatersrand and the University of Johannesburg. I remain a visiting professor at the last-mentioned university, where I still teach in their LLM in Financial Regulation. In 2016 my family and I moved to Australia. I am currently teaching in the Master of Corporate Governance offered through the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship and I serve as the Deputy Department Chair of the Swinburne Law School in Melbourne.
My current research interests lie in business disruption, through social change or technological advancement, and its interaction with regulation.
