Personal profile

Personal profile

Rebecca joined the Department of Law and Criminology on 1st September 2023. Prior to that, she was a Senior Lecturer in Law at St Mary's University, Twickenham, and Teaching Fellow in Jurisprudence at University College London.

Rebecca's current teaching includes English Legal System, Tort, Contract Law, and the Integrated Law with Foundation Year Programme.

Rebecca's research interests lie in Jurisprudence, moral philosophy, and legal and political theory, with a particular focus on the moral foundations of individual rights. Her doctoral research examined the notion of incommensurability between human partiality and our moral duties towards others in practical reason, and analysed the way this influences our approach to reasoning about conflicts between human rights. More recently, Rebecca's current research applies these ideas of incommensurability in practical reason to a radicalized interpretation of Kant in the context of feminism and oppression studies.
