Research Interests

My research interests derive from the fields of property and land law, with particular focus on the sentimental attachments to property and compulsory purchase laws, namely the adequacy of the compensation awarded when homes are compulsorily purchased in the UK.

Beyond property law, my research interests also derive from the field of environmental law, particularly regulatory theory, climate change matters, the regulation of flooding, and the planning of infrastructure developments, such as HS2.

My discipline specific research interests derive from the field of equity and trusts, including critical analyses of equitable concepts, fiduciary duties, the separation of title, and trustees' duties. 

My scholarship examines pedagogical issues across a range of disciplines, with a particular focus on assessment practices and active learning environments. For example, I am currently undertaking a research project which seeks to gather empirical research to determine the benefit of formative assessments for undergraduate law students and their consequential need to be incorporated within the curriculum design of the school's modules.
