Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in the fields of Consumer Law, Commercial Law, Contract Law, and Transnational Commercial law. The areas I am focusing on in particular currently are the implications of the digital revolution for contract, consumer and commercial law, and the notion on harmonisation, both in the context of European Consumer & Contract Law and Transnational Commercial Law.


I have been Professor of International Commercial Law at Warwick since September 2017.

I read law at the University of Sheffield (LLB in 1997 and PhD in 2002). I started my academic career at Nottingham Trent University (1999-2002) before returning to Sheffield as Lecturer (2002-4). I joined the University of Hull in 2004 as Lecturer and was successively promoted to Senior Lecturer (2005), Reader (2008), and became Professor of Commercial Law there in 2010.

I am also currently a Senior International Fellow at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) [2016-18], and an Associate Academic Fellow of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.

I am one of the Law editors for the Journal of Consumer Policy.
