My current teaching activities include criminal law and gender, sexuality on the law on the LLB, and law and society on the Foundation degree.

My research interests are partial defences to murder, and consent/sexual offences. My research often involves a comparative element, in particular with USA or Australian territories.

My current research project looks at abused children who commit parricide.
