Senior Lecturer in Law, London South Bank University
I am a lecturer in law with the department of Law and Social Sciences. I joined LSBU in September 2021, having previously worked in a Hong Kong law school and at the University of Nottingham. My research investigates business-related human rights issues with a focus on socio-economic rights and markets for essential resources.
I have published extensively in the field of business and human rights, including in International and Comparative Law Quarterly, the Business and Human Rights Journal, and Transnational Legal Theory. I co-edited the Edward Elgar Research Handbook on Human Rights and Business, and I currently lead the Human Rights and Political Economy research group at the Business and Human Rights Global Scholars Association.
