Following stints as a Lecturer at the University of Auckland and a Visiting Professor at McGill University, I was appointed a Senior Lecturer at Queen’s University Belfast School of Law in 2013. My current research interests and teaching responsibilities oscillate between international law (public and private), Third World legal studies, and legal methods, skills, and theory.
My scholarship is distinct in two ways. First, I adopt an inclusive understanding of international law, treating its public and private facets as symbiotic rather than mutually exclusive. Second, I favour the use of a Third World-centric method in my research, consistently searching for the impact of international law on societies that the First World often excludes from international legal debate.
This site contains a compilation of my latest work. I welcome feedback and invite enquiries from prospective master’s and doctoral students with similar research interests. I am also eager to collaborate with scholars on research projects.
