Research biography

My research focuses on the history and theory of international law with a particular emphasis on political economy, race/ism and imperialism. Currently, I am developing a project on international law and racial capitalism, especially in the aftermath of white-minority rule.

Current courses

Philosophy & approach

My teaching is based on the idea that only solid theorising can help us truly understand legal doctrine, but also that attention to the details, the 'boring' bits of the law is the best way into the law's 'secrets'. I try to run an inclusive classroom and to teach a wide range of materials both in terms of opinion and in terms of identities that have so far been marginalised in the study of the law. 

Past courses

  • Gender, Law and Development (Sem 2, 2020)
  • International Law (Sem 2, 2020)
