I read law at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and the University of Paris II (MA) as well as Harvard Law School (LL.M.) before returning to complete an AHRC-funded DPhil at Magdalen (2010-12). Prior to taking up my Fellowship at Magdalen, I was a Supernumerary Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford (2011-13), and a Stipendiary Lecturer at Jesus College (2010-11). I have also been a research visitor at Columbia Law School, New York, and the Max Planck Institute, Hamburg; and lectured in Paris, Beijing, and at University College, London.


My college teaching covers Constitutional Law (for Law Mods) and European Union Law (FHS) – some of the most dynamic and interesting subjects in Oxford’s undergraduate syllabus, with recent developments in the United Kingdom and beyond. My faculty teaching comprises lectures in EU Law and Labour law (FHS); I am also involved in the teaching of International and European Employment Law and Corporate Law (BCL/MJur). In 2013, I received a University Teaching Excellence Award in the Social Sciences Division.


My principal research interests are in the fields of Employment Law, Corporate Law, and European Union Law (with a particular focus on Civil Aviation). In Employment Law, I focus on the regulation of fragmenting labour markets – from outsourcing to Private Equity investee companies – and comparative research into European employment law in times of crisis, including a recent project for the International Labour Organisation (ILO). My work in European law includes co-editing the EU Law in the Member States Series (Hart | Bloomsbury Publishing), exploring the reception and implementation of EU-level norms across different Member States. In Civil Aviation, I am particularly interested in the interaction of the Montreal Convention of 1999 and EU Regulation 261/2004 in shaping the future of passenger rights. I also serve on the committee of the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Air Law Group.
