My research, situated within the socio-legal paradigm and utilising an empirical methodology, investigates the role of public interest groups in litigating gene patent challenges in national courts. Via case studies and semi-structured interviews I explore the systemic and legal boundaries to public interest litigation & engagement with gene patents.
I currently teach British Constitutional History on the International Foundation Programme, Law.
I have an LLB (University of Kent, 2011) and an MSc with Distinction in Socio-Legal Studies (University of Bristol, 2015).
I am a member of the SWDTP and received ESRC Funding (1 + 3 Scholarship) to complete my doctoral research. I am also a member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA).
