My research spans Private Law (particularly Property, Contracts and Equity) and Legal Theory, often as those topics intersect with issues of technological innovation. I am currently writing a book (“Artificial Justice”) with Oxford University Press about how the use of predictive algorithms bears on questions of law and justice. I joined Melbourne Law School from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2020, and received my D.Phil, BCL and LLB from the University of Oxford.
I welcome PhD and mentorship enquiries from junior scholars. I particularly welcome mentorship enquiries from women, and from black and First Nations scholars, in Private Law and Law and Technology.
