Career Summary

Biography

I have formerly taught extensively in matters of law, international relations and politics at Macquarie University before being appointed to Newcastle University in 2010. My principal research interest is the legality of unilateral non-colonial (UNC) secession in international law. This entails the study of classic subjects of international law such as state creation, self-determination of peoples, sources of international law, the use of force and recognition. I am also particularly interested in the law of fiduciary obligations, dispositions of equitable interests in property, equitable priorities and theories of property law.

Research Expertise
My principal areas of research expertise include secessionist self-determination in international law, fiduciary obligations, equitable dispositions of property and equitable priorities. I have previously undertaken research in matters relating to the Cold War, post-materialism and international relations theory.

Teaching Expertise
I teach Property Law, Equity and Trusts Law, and Company Law to LLB students.
