I’m an international human rights lawyer and researcher, focused on policing, national security and racial justice, and Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies.
I have worked for Amnesty International, Open Society Foundations and ActionAid International, among other organisations. My work has included writing a leading guide to investigating racial profiling, researching human rights abuses in Turkey and Western Europe, and running a successful campaign to free a Syrian man unfairly convicted on terrorism charges. I co-founded COVID State Watch, a project documenting and visualising the exercise of emergency powers during the Covid-19 pandemic, which received support from the Centre for Applied Human Rights.
When I'm not working, I'm usually busy with some form of political and community organising, from door-knocking to direct action.
I received my BA from Oxford University and my Masters in Law from SOAS. I'm qualified as a solicitor in England & Wales. I'm currently based in Naarm (aka “Melbourne"), Australia.
If you're interested in my work, want to hire me for your human rights project, or think we could collaborate in any other way, please feel free to get in touch.
