Area of academic expertise - outline
My current research focuses on the legal rights of transgender individuals, in particular the right to legal recognition of one's gender identity. My wider research interests include areas where law and the body intersect e.g. age of consent and (non)consent to medical treatment/medical law in general. I am also interested in issues broadly defined as encompassing gender, sexuality, and law and human rights aspects in relation to bodily autonomy, race, sexuality and gender; queer theory and its impact on law and policy, and equality and diversity law.
Current research activities
The majority of my current research activities relate to LGBT rights.
Desired research direction
I plan to continue working in the field of LGBT rights
Target collaborative companies
I would be keen to work with any company to advise on LGBT issues.
Target collaborative organisations
I would be keen to work with national and international organisations in relation to LGBT rights issues. In particular I'd be keen to work with organisations such as the NHS
Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange
Broadly my areas of expertise relate to LGBT issues, in particular legal rights of Trans* people. I also have expertise in child protection law.
