I teach and write about private law, especially contract, property, and tort. I’m particularly interested in theoretical questions about how to understand and justify these areas of law, as well as related issues in moral and political philosophy.
Before joining LSE in 2015, I spent several years in North America. I studied for a masters in law at NYU as a Hauser Scholar. I worked in litigation at Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York City. I returned to academia to pursue my doctoral studies, on the theory of contract law, at the University of Toronto. I was a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia Law School.
I grew up in New Zealand, and I began my academic career at the University of Auckland, where I studied for a conjoint bachelor of laws and bachelor of arts in political philosophy and English literature. Subsequently I worked as a judge’s clerk at the Supreme Court of New Zealand.
