I am currently a PhD Candidate at the Law school. I am fully funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC MGS DTP 1+3 Scholarship). As part of this scholarship, I completed an MA in Social Research. For my dissertation, I explored opinions and attitudes of university students about refusing medical treatment in advance of losing decisional capacity.
Prior to starting and after finishing my degree in law, I worked as an Assistant Practice Manager at a leading set of Barristers Chambers in Birmingham. During my LLM, I took part in the Birmingham Law School and the UN Women Project on Constitutional Law and Women’s Rights. My research focused on the right to health and abortion in Kenyan Constitution.
In addition, since 2016 I have been working as a Research Assistant on various projects (University of Birmingham, Durham University and the University of Kent). Examples of research include: assisting Professor Rosie Harding on her two research projects, Everyday Decisions and Supported Will-Making undertaken for the Law Commission. At present I am a Research Assistant to Professor Clare McGlynn (Durham Law School) and Professor Erika Rackley (University of Kent) on the Image-Based Abuse project which is funded by the Australian Research Council. I have also worked as a Research Assistant to various law professors on topics relating to: supported decision-making, medical law, bioethics, abortion law, human rights and counterterrorism
