Since joining Sheffield Hallam, I have taught on a range of modules at both undergraduate and post-graduate level, and have supervised a number of dissertations and research projects. During my time at Sheffield Hallam University, I have been involved in various projects relating to on-line provision/e-learning, and have developed paper-based and on-line resources designed to assist students in developing their legal referencing/citation skills.
In 2013, I was awarded a College Inspirational Teacher Award. I am currently undertaking a post-graduate research project which examines the human rights implications of the United Kingdom’s legal responses to terrorism.
My teaching interests primarily relate to land/property law, US law, anti-terrorism law and policy, and domestic and international human rights. I am particularly interested in the human rights implications of legal responses to terrorism, and I have delivered taught sessions and supervised numerous dissertations and research projects on this topic.
My principal research interests include states' legal responses to the post-9/11 terrorism threat and human rights law. In particular, my current focus is on the use of ‘preventive’ counter-terrorism measures, a topic on which I have delivered a number of papers at national and international conferences.
