Other Interests
After my PhD I completed pupillage at a leading set of criminal chambers in London. As of October 2016 I am a tenant practising from 5 Paper Buildings, both prosecuting and defending, and have returned part-time to Robinson as a College Teaching Officer. When I am not in court or supervising, I enjoy running and baking (not simultaneously). Whilst at Robinson as a CTA (2013-2015) I rowed for the College, and am still tempted into a boat as a sub occasionally.
