Biography

Sabrina is a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Law, and founding member and co-convener of the Faculty's Feminist Jurisprudence Discussion Group. Her work is funded by a Faculty Dean's Scholarship.

Her research investigates how law can help to bring an ethic of care to hostels and other accommodation-based responses for people experiencing 'single homelessness' and 'complex needs'.

She graduated from the BCL in 2020 with a Distinction, winning the Herbert Hart Prize for Jurisprudence and Political Theory. She graduated from an LLB at University College London in 2018 with a First Class Honours, winning the 1 Garden Court Family Law Chambers Prize; the Kingsley Napley Prize for the Law of Evidence; and Dean's List Prize for Academic Excellence. After graduating from UCL she founded and convened the Faculty's Feminist Jurisprudence Discussion Group and taught on Laws' Connections, an undergraduate module which considers law as a response to social phenomena.

Sabrina has worked as a research assistant to Professor Alison Diduck on Lady Hale's contribution to the law of ancillary relief following divorce. She has also held a research position at the University of Monash where she investigated how law could assist children who have experienced institutional care provided the state to access records held about them as part of an interdisciplinary project entitled 'Setting the Record Straight: for the rights of the child'.

In between and alongside studying Sabrina has worked for homelessness charities. She now prefers to continue working alongside people experiencing homelessness informally and through research. She has also worked for legal aid law firms supporting people who have experienced domestic violence and criminal law firms which represent young homeless and socioeconomically disadvantaged defendants such as Herbert Smith Freehills' The Shopfront Youth Legal Centre in Sydney. 

Her research interests include homelessness; socioeconomic rights; the right to 'belong'; equality; poverty and its relationship with equality; vulnerability; (relational) autonomy; social security and welfare; feminist jurisprudence; and feminist ethics of care.
