I studied at Glasgow and Sheffield, and held academic posts at Durham, Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield Law Schools, before joining The City Law School in 2021.
My main research interests are in the field of European Union social and constitutional law, in particular its application in health fields, social security and welfare, and non-discrimination. Since 2016, I have worked on the UK's changing relationship with the EU and other trade partners, and what that means for health. I have published on the European Union's competence in social fields, especially health law; on the regulation of tobacco in the EU context; on European public health law and policy; on the governance of stem cell research in the EU; on EU non-discrimination law and minority rights; and on the 'right to health' in European contexts. I am interested in socio-legal theory and method, in particular as applied to the law of the European Union.
My work covers two main fields: health law and policy; and equality and diversity.
