I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, Queen’s University Belfast. I coordinate the LLM in Law and Technology and am a core team member of the LINAS Doctoral Training Programme. I teach Regulating Innovation; Computational Skills for Law Students; and Data, Privacy and the Law. I also lecture Company Law on our LLB programme.

I am currently supervising doctoral research projects on smart cities; educational technologies; and on smart homes and coercive control.

My main research interests focus on normative questions around ideas of corporate accountability, whether at the individual level or at the level of the corporation itself. My current focus is on how businesses, regulators and law put the language of human rights to work in addressing the impacts that business operations have on people, societies and the environment.

Alongside Leonie Heres at Erasmus University Rotterdam, I am co-chair of Permanent Study Group VII: Ethics and Integrity, at the European Group of Public Administration (previously ‘Quality and Integrity of Governance’). The study group welcomes papers, study groups and research ideas that address matters of ethics, quality, integrity, and accountability in governance.

I welcome PhD proposals on accountability, business and human rights, law and technology, and on organisational accountability, corruption and ethics more generally. I am increasingly interested in computation-led analyses of corporate governance, CSR etc.
