Sarah joined the Oxford Law Faculty in September 2010, as a fellow of St Hilda's College. Her research focuses on the causal element of the negligence inquiry and the interface between tort and property, with a particular emphasis on the law's treatment of intangibles. In December 2014, Sarah published a monograph entitled 'Causation in Negligence' with Hart Publishing. Her previous book was 'The Tort of Conversion' (Hart Publishing, 2009) with John Randall QC, the first major work on the subject in English law. She has published various articles on aspects of tort, property and contract in a wide range of journals, including the Conveyancer and Property Lawyer, Journal of Business Law, Law Quarterly Review, Lloyds Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly, Medical Law Review and Modern Law Review. In terms of teaching, Sarah's principal interests lie in Torts, Personal Property and Contract, reflecting her research interests in the fields of private law and commercial law.

Sarah is happy to supervise doctoral students in most areas of tort, contract and personal property
