I lecture in law on the BSc/HND/HNC Health & Social Care, MA Specialist Journalism and MSc Sport Broadcast programmes at Cardiff Metropolitan University. I am also a dissertation supervisor. I previously lectured on the Consumer & Trading Standards degree which was delivered by the university; this experience was the catalyst for my PhD. Before becoming a lecturer, I practised as a solicitor working in private practise, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Welsh Office, and the National Assembly for Wales; I still hold solicitor status but am currently non-practising.

Stemming from my PhD, my research interests include the role of the local authority in social justice and how human rights can be more effectively embedded in the application of social policy within Wales. I also have a particular interest in devolution, constitutional law, consumer law, and media law and regulation.
