Associate Professor

My research area is primarily within social law and social rights, in particular anti-discrimination law, equality law and poverty law. 

My current research project 'Down by Law? Courts' construction of Poverty Standards in Europe' is funded by Carlsberg Foundation and I investigate how judicial practices both nationally and internationally form poverty norms and rules and specifically rules concerning subsistence minimums.  

I have also worked with the development of legislation and public policies concerning equality broadly, economic inequality and anti-discrimination law. 

In my current research I am broadly interested in

  • Social law broadly and social benefits 
  • Poverty law
  • Equality and anti-discrimination law
  • Economic inequality in national and international legal context
