I am a Senior Lecturer in Law at City, University of London. I am also co-founder and trustee of the Treebeard Trust.
I specialise in coercive control and the criminal law. I advise governments and activists around the world on the doctrinal implications of domestic abuse law reform, and through the Treebeard Trust support transformative initiatives to empower women affected by violence .
I am joining the Home Office funded research Operation Bluestone/Soteria from September 2022 – becoming part of the team working to transform the police response to rape… I will be focusing on rape and sexual abuse that takes place within an intimate relationship. This is a once in a lifetime moment for me and I am beyond excited and grateful.
