I joined Swansea University in January 2018, before which I was a Lecturer at the University of Sussex. I have a PhD from the University of Edinburgh (2015), a master's degree from University College London (2010) and an undergraduate degree from the University of Oxford (2004). I was called to the Bar in 2006.
My main research is in constitutional theory, with my PhD thesis examining the question of whether judicial review of legislation is anti-democratic. I am particularly interested in the symbolic dimension of constitutional design, and in the relationship between political institutions, political practices and political values.
