I am a Lecturer in Corporate Governance and Director of Graduate Studies in the School of Law at Queen’s University Belfast. I teach on our LLM in International Business Law. I also teach Company Law and Corporate Governance on our LLB programme.
My main research interests focus on how to think about the corporate purpose, especially with regard to standard models of the shareholder-oriented corporation.
