I am an Associate Professor at the Law Faculty and the Hanbury Fellow and Tutor in Law at Lincoln College.
As an undergraduate, I read law at Corpus Christi College, Oxford (2007-2010), before taking the BPTC (2010-11), and I returned to Corpus to read for an M.St in Legal Research (2011-2012). I then read for a doctorate at Girton College, Cambridge (2012-2016), for which I was awarded a Yorke Prize by the Cambridge Faculty of Law. I then took up a position as a Fellow and Director of Studies for the Law Tripos at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge (2015-2018).
My research focuses on trusts, fiduciaries, and equitable remedies in the commercial sphere. I am especially interested in the use of legal historical method to shed light on modern legal problems and on how private law took its modern structure. I am also interested in the nature of the 'fiduciary' duties owed by the Crown to native peoples.
