Law, design, drumming, code

I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh School of Law. My research explores the intersection between design, compliance, and legal theory.

I'm also the Technical Editor of SCRIPTed, an open access technology, IP, and medical law journal based at Edinburgh's School of Law.

Outside of the academic world, I'm the Convener (chair) of The Edinburgh Samba School, as well as a sambista — I mainly play the caixa (the drum in the pic here), as well as sometimes directing and composing. I'm also an occasional photographer and Munro bagger, and in my past lives I've been a legal researcher and web developer (sometimes simultaneously).
