I am Chair of Global Legal Studies at the University of Birmingham School of Law. My teaching focuses on counter-terrorism, human rights, and comparative public law, and I supervise a number of doctoral and masters 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. Outside of work, I play tennis (poorly) and golf (rarely), enjoy cooking (relatively well), and am something of a politics wonk. I am married and live between Birmingham and London.
