Senior Lecturer Law


Public International Law; International Human Rights Law; Counter-Terrorism (globally and in the UK); the Prohibition of Torture and other Ill-Treatment

I am particularly interested in the prohibition of torture and other ill-treatment in international law (international human rights law and international criminal law); and in human rights in states of emergency and counter-terrorism. My research is interdisciplinary and underpinned by my overriding interest in political, moral and critical theory. I am interested in the conceptual underpinnings of rights and in the shortcomings of rights discourse.
