Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am the Course Director for the LLM Law & Finance programme, teaching classes in International Banking Law and Financial Regulation and Compliance. I am also the class coordinator for our English Law of Torts classes on our English/Scots Law LLB Programme and act as the senior tutor in the school, with responsibility for undergraduate pastoral care and wellbeing.

My research interests lie in Financial Law and concern regulating behaviour predominantly in the financial sector through taxation at both national and international level. My PhD thesis concerned the European Commission’s controversial and polarising proposal to introduce a tax on financial transactions occurring within the European Union, using it as a case study to assess legal theories of integration. I have also written in other areas of taxation, including the 'Tampon Tax'. Moving forward I am intending to conduct research into the adoption and implementation of local complementary currencies in the UK.

Prior to arriving at Strathclyde in 2016 I completed a Law and French (LLB) (2007-2011) and European Legal Studies LLM (2011-2012) both at Cardiff University, including an Erasmus year at the Université Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France (2009-10) during my undergraduate degree where I completed the 3rd Year French Public Law Licence. I subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Leeds (2012-2016).

My office hours are on Thursdays and Fridays from 2pm-3pm in LH329.
