I have an extensive background in multi-disciplinary human rights research- both field based and desk based. I have most recently worked as Lead Research Fellow at the University of Roehampton on the Is Britain Fairer review and the Human Rights Measurement Framework for the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Previously I have worked as a Research Consultant to the Overseas Development Institute examining land governance and rights based approaches for DFID, the University of Roehampton, and the Humanitarian Department at Oxfam GB, where my work was used to inform protection and livelihood field surveys in Jordan and Lebanon. I have held the appointment of researcher on a global European Commission FP7 project with a particular emphasis on the application of international and regional human rights laws for religious minorities in South Asia and Europe.
In addition, I have held the position of Adjunct Assistant Professor in International Law & Politics at the Richmond American University in London, Visiting Lecturer in International Human Rights Law at the University of Roehampton and Brunel University teaching both undergraduates and postgraduates. I have been an invited lecturer in Nepal, Italy and London to teach on international human rights summer schools.
I have co-authored publications relating to human rights, indigenous and minority rights, in journals such as the "Journal of Global Ethics" and the "European Yearbook on Minority Issues" with numerous credits in other books and articles in this field.
