Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

My main areas of research are in family and relationship privacy, informational and physical/medical privacy, and human rights more generally. This research has formed the basis for publications in leading UK law journals and chapters in edited collections, including articles on same sex registered partnerships, the treatment of sexual minorities, terrorism and the ECtHR’s abortion jurisprudence.
