Faculty of Law


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.  

My monograph, Capitalism Before Corporations (OUP 2020) was awarded the Peter Birks Prize for Outstanding Legal Scholarship 2021 by the Society of Legal Scholars. In 2022, I was awarded a Teaching Excellence (Early Career) Award by the Social Sciences Division of the University.
