Profile

As an undergraduate, I read Law at Corpus Christi College, Oxford (2007-10), before taking the BPTC (2010-11), and I returned to Corpus to read for an MSt in Legal Research (2011-12). I then read for a doctorate at Girton College, Cambridge (2012-16), for which I was awarded a Yorke Prize by the Cambridge Faculty of Law. I then took up a position as a Fellow and Director of Studies for the Law Tripos at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge (2015-2018).

College teaching

I give tutorials and lectures to undergraduates in both Land Law and the Law of Trusts. I also teach on the Advanced Property and Trusts course on the law master’s degree, the BCL.

Research

My research focuses on trusts, fiduciaries, and equitable remedies in the commercial sphere. I am especially interested in the use of legal historical method to shed light on modern legal problems and in how private law took its modern structure. I am also interested in the nature of the 'fiduciary' duties owed by the Crown to native peoples.
