My research spans Law and Technology, Legal Theory, and Private Law. I recently published Artificial Justice (OUP 2023), which calls for us to look beyond inequality when we think and talk about algorithmic fairness.

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.
