Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a socio-legal researcher in the area of labour law. My academic background is in 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 current research focuses on the innovation economy. I hold a Leverhulme Fellowship for a project examining the relations between employers and employees in technology startups. This is an empirical project that investigates how law interacts with other social and economic factors in these dynamic companies. I am also a co-investigator of an AHRC funded project exploring ethical issues relating to human labour in the context of Industry 4.0. This project seeks to bring together various actors involved in the lifecycle of digital manufacturing, including the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, and to undertake preliminary investigation into issues at the nexus of human labour, workplace culture, and AI ethics.

My teaching has been in the areas of labour law, legal theory and legal research methods. I am the convenor for the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences (SGSSS) pathway in Socio-Legal Studies and Criminology. I am also the Law School Deputy Director of Research.
