Personal profile


My work centres on European Union law and policy-making, regulation and competition, and the role of courts in governance. My research approaches encompass doctrinal legal research, elite interviewing, comparative analysis, content analysis, and interdisciplinary research particularly with economics and political science.

I joined York Law School in 2010. I have held visiting fellowships at the European University Institute, Florence; iCourts Centre of Excellence for International Courts, University of Copenhagen; and GOVTRUST Centre of Excellence, University of Antwerp. During 2018 I was a Parliamentary Academic Fellow providing support and advice to the House of Commons Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee on the UK's future relationship with the EU. 

Previously I was a Research Associate in the multidisciplinary ESRC Centre for Competition Policy (CCP). I have carried out commissioned research for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the (then) UK Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform, and the Welsh Senedd. Before entering academia I worked at the European Parliament and in a law firm.
