Profile

Biography

LLB (Hons) (York)

I completed my undergraduate degree at York Law School, graduating with an LLB (Hons). I commenced my PhD, funded by York Law School, in 2018.

I am a Senior Editor for the York Law Review and the Convenor of the Sounding Board Seminars.

Research

Overview

My research focuses on the legal implications in employment law and tort which may arise from work in the so-called gig economy. By taking a case study approach, I am examining various forms of work to understand how the law should respond to any identified challenges.
