Biography

I joined the Faculty of Business and Law in January 2013, having worked as a Fellow at LSE and SOAS and as a Visiting Lecturer at City University London and the University of Essex. I have extensive teaching experience in the field of EU Law and Human Rights Law and I am currently teaching EU Competition Law, EU Law, Discrimination and Human Rights Law and Employment Law at the School. My research focuses primarily on equality and non-discrimination in Europe. I have published in the area of gender equality and I am contributing to edited volumes on aspects of European Human Rights Law that will be published in early 2014. I am a regular invited speaker in the Academy of European Law (ERA) in Trier, as an expert on positive action and gender equality. I have presented papers in a number of national and international conferences and workshops, most recently in Sheffield, Brussels, Leeds, Sussex and Modena.

I am a Level 4 Tutor for 2013-2014 and I am supervising undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations.

I have published in the area of gender equality and I am contributing to edited volumes on aspects of European Human Rights Law that will be published in early 2014.
