About

I have been teaching for the last 5 years. My love of teaching started whilst I was at University. There I set up and ran a tutoring service for first and second year law students focussing predominantly on Contract Law, Land Law and Tort Law. Since then I have gained experience teaching law to business and accountancy students, aswell as taking European Union Law and Equity & Trusts Seminars on LL.B (Hons) courses.

I have been teaching at the University of Derby since September 2015. I am responsible for teaching Equity & Succession tutorials to undergraduate students, as well as being module leader for National and International Sale of Goods on the Masters programme.

Research interests

My research interests lie predominantly in the field of Intellectual Property Law, specifically focussing on the interaction between intellectual property and medical law. I am currently writing my Ph.D on the interaction between trade mark law and the right to health. This project looks at the practical problem caused by modern functions of trademarks, whilst asking whether attempts by the government to restrict such functions through packaging legislation is truly the best option.
