Biography

LLB (Hons) (York), MA (York)

Igraduated from York Law School in 2019 with an LLB, before completing the MA in Social Research in 2020 at the Research Centre for Social Sciences. I then commenced my PhD in the Law School, funded by an ESRC studentship, in October 2020.

My research focuses on the use of crowdfunding to support litigation, within the context of the judicial review system. Using empirical methods, the research has two core aims. Firstly, to construct a map of the crowdfunding landscape and its key actors. Secondly, to understand in-depth how the unique dynamics of the crowdfunding phenomenon affect experiences of legal mobilisation, using case studies of campaign groups operating at local and national scales.
