I am Associate Dean for Education at the Faculty of Law. As such, I am responsible for the Faculty's educations, and part of the day-to-day mangement of the Faculty. 
In my research, I work with:

My book, Disaster Law, investigates how a change in the way disasters are understood and managed affects fundamental notions of duty, responsibility and justice. My present research continues these efforts, by investigating a wide range of issues relating to law and disasters.

I teach the following subjects:

  •     Existential Risks and the Law
