LL.B. 1995 (Cardiff University), Ph.D. 1998 (Nottingham University)

I joined the School of Law in 1998 after undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Cardiff and Nottingham universities.

As an administrative lawyer, my research interests lie in the following areas: law and administrative organizations; administrative tribunals and other redress mechanisms; judicial review; and administrative rule-making, administrative law and institutional and constitutional design; asylum and immigration law; and administrative justice.

In 2003-04, I acted as a specialist adviser to the House of Commons Constitutional Affairs Select Committee with regard to the following inquiries: Immigration and Asylum: the Government's proposed changes to publicly funded immigration and asylum work (2002-03 HC 1171) and Asylum and Immigration Appeals (2003-04 HC 211).
