Overview

I teach commercial/private law, especially sales law and related legal areas (such as carriage of goods, shipping law and cargo insurance), insurance and banking law, corporate law. Before joining Manchester in Sept 2020, I was briefly a lecturer at University of Bradford, also briefly a post-doctoral research assistant at University of Hull, and further back a post-doctoral fellow at the National University of Singapore. I have an English LLB (Honours, London), PhD in Law (Aberdeen), LLM in internaitonal (commercial) law, and BA in English. I am an academic drafting committee member of the ongoing project UNIDROIT Principles of Reinsurance Contract Law.

My primary reseach focuses on

(1) inter-disciplinary approaches to reasonable expectations in contract law, insurance law, corporate law, properietary estoppel, privacy law, and their relevance to (litigation or alternative) dispute resolution in these areas of law.

(2) socio-legal studies of law's role, especially the interactions between insurance law and other areas of law, in 'risk society'.

Of secondary interest, I also conduct research in 'third-world approaches to comparative private law' between civil and common law jurisdictions.

I welcome PhD applications in or related to these areas of legal research.
