I have written several articles on Motor Insurance in journals such as New Law Journal, British Insurance Law Association Journal, and Personal Injury Law Brief Update Journal.

I am also a member of the Motor Insurance Working Party at the Association International De Droit Des Assurances and have presented in Paris and Helsinki.
