Personal profile

I am a third year PhD candidate in the School of Law and Criminology.

(Working) thesis title: Pregnancy and the law - how are pregnant persons conceptualised in law? 

The overall aim of my research is to evaluate how pregnant persons are conceptualised in law, and the impact this has on the autonomy of pregnant persons. There are two strands to the research 1) an enquiry into the values of liberalism and feminism, via practical application within case law, and 2) to examine the conceptualisation of pregnant persons as private, decision making individuals, and correspondingly as public, decision making citizens. 

During my time at RHUL, I have organised and run events on behalf of CSEL (Centre for the Study of Emotion and Law) and the Rights and Freedoms Research Cluster. I am also a member of the Families and Children, and Health and Social Care Research Clusters, and have assisted at events for each of these. I have taught on a number of modules, covering Law, Criminology and Sociology. Last year I was a member of the Ethics Review Committee for Masters research projects. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
