After undergraduate degrees in law in Paris and London, I trained as a solicitor, working at Linklaters and White & Case in their London and Paris offices. I have also taught on the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School in London and worked as in-house counsel for both a hedge fund and pharmaceutical company in Switzerland. At different times I was an associate lecturer, then visiting lecturer at Exeter University, teaching contract law, tort law, company law, French constitutional law, French administrative law and French contract law. 

I hold a PGCE from University of Exeter. In 2015, I completed the Exeter LLM in International commercial law with distinction and, in 2017, the Exeter MRes in socio-legal studies with distinction.

I am interested in contract law, capacity, decision-making and dementia, and my ESRC funded PhD on being a consumer with dementia brings all these themes together.
