Welcome

o2JP78mLWelcome to my website.

I am Chair of Global Legal Studies at the University of Birmingham School of Law and Honorary Professor at the Australian National University College of Law (2019-2022). My teaching focuses on counter-terrorism, human rights, and comparative public law, and I supervise a number of graduate students working on human rights law and practice, constitutionalism and comparative law. In 2017 I was awarded the Philip Leverhulme Prize in Law, which provides £100,000 to support my research over three years. This period of intensive research work began in November 2018 and runs until November 2023. Outside of work, I play tennis (poorly) and golf (rarely), and enjoy cooking (I track my cooking efforts on Instagram). I am married and live in Birmingham.
