Interests

My primary research interest is administrative law. My research focuses on a number of issues within this field, but I am primarily interested in the nature of administrative law doctrine and, in particular, whether it is possible or helpful to understand that body of doctrine through the lens of a single 'organising principle.'  I am also interested, more broadly, in issues of UK public law, public and private law theory, general jurisprudence and the methodology of legal scholarship.

CV / Biography

I am currently a lecturer and fellow at St John's College where I provide supervisions in Constitutional Law and Administrative Law and affiliated lecturer at the Faculty of Law where I supervise on the Public Law Seminar course. Prior to this, I was at the University of Oxford. In 2012 I graduated from the BA in Jurisprudence, sharing the Wronker prize for best overall performance in FHS examinations, and in 2013 I graduated from the BCL.  In 2017 I completed the DPhil in law at Oxford, a project which was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
