Projects per year
I am a socio-legal researcher in the area of labour law. My academic background is in both law and sociology (LLB, MA (sociology), and PhD (sociology)). I began my career practicing law in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Since undertaking postgraduate study, I have worked in the university sector – in both social science and law environments – in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.
My research interests include the regulation of knowledge work, working time, the relationship between work and personal life, and access to justice in employment disputes. I have published a range of articles and reports on these topics. I am currently undertaking a research project funded by the Carnegie Trust entitled Managerial prerogative and the contours of employees' work and non-work lives. From 2012 to 2015, I was involved in an ERC funded research project entitled Citizens Advice Bureaux and employment disputes.
My teaching focuses on labour law, legal theory and legal research methods. I am the module leader for the following classes: Regulating Work in a Global Economy, Law and Society, and Legal Research Skills and Methods. I am presently the convenor for the Scottish Graduate School for Social Sciences (SGSSS) pathway in Socio-Legal Research and Criminology.
