I am a lecturer in the School of Law and Politics, where I teach on the Family Law and Law in the Community modules.

I conduct research on family law issues, with a particular focus on the financial consequences of relationship breakdown. My PhD research looked at the financial arrangements reached by separating parents, and how childcare responsibilities intersected with these. During this project, I spent time as a visting researcher at the University of Uppsala in Sweden. I also conducted interviews with lawyers in Sweden and the Netherlands in order to understand the different approaches taken by the law in these jurisdicitions.

I have written on a variety of family law subjects, and am the co-author of the Family Law Concentrate revision guide published by OUP.

Prior to working in academia, I was a solicitor in practice. I continue to work as a Professional Support Lawyer at the Family Law Practice in Bristol, where I deliver regular training sessions on the latest developments in family law.
