About me

About me

I first joined the Law School at Stirling in 2021 and since then have enjoyed teaching on a range of modules across the law and social-sciences faculties.

Prior to coming to Stirling I mainly worked in non-profit and third or voluntary sector legal and research roles in Scotland and overseas. I also completed a three-month SGSSS doctoral internship with the Scottish Government Justice Analytical Service in 2021.

I hold an LLB in Scots Law from the University of Edinburgh (2017), an LLM in International Criminal Justice and Human Rights from the University of Dundee (2018) and I am currently completing my PhD in criminology at Stirling.


My research interests include international, transnational and national criminal law, human rights, international public law, and global security.

I am also interested in exploring innovative and mixed or multiple methodologies. In particular, how new and emerging sociological and criminological methodologies can be used and applied in legal research to add value and different perspectives to legal issues.



Teaching in Autumn Semester 2023-24: Module Coordinator for 'Law of Delict' (LLBU9DE) and Lecturer on 'Legal Research Methods' (LAWU9RE).

Teaching in Spring Semester 2023-24: 'Criminal Law and Evidence' (LLBU9CE), 'European Law' (LAWU9E1), 'Commercial Law' (LLBU9CM).

Additionally I supervise undergraduate law dissertations on a range of topics across criminal, international, and human rights law.

I am also passionate about access to higher education and innovation and development in FE and HE teaching.
