I am the Director of Law in Cornwall.  I specialise in Land Law, Trusts, Business, Planning and Environmental Law, and I am particularly interested in the role of law in sustainable development and environmental protection.  

I qualified as a Solicitor in 2001 and spent a number of years in practice before joining Exeter.  I was the subject coordinator of Land Law and the Law of Trusts at our Cornwall Campus and I am currently offering modules in Environmental Law and Business.

I am a member of the Law Society and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
