Research

I research in the fields of corporate governance, comparative company law, law and economics, law and finance, law and technology, takeover regulation, business ethics and labour law.

At present, I am working on a number of projects in ESG investing / sustainable finance / climate change and law and technology / fintech / AI.

My doctoral thesis involves the study of shareholder activism and takeovers, with a particular emphasis on hedge fund activist board representation.

My recent publications include: The New Hedge Fund Activism: Activist Directors and the Market for Corporate Quasi-Control’ 19(1) Journal of Corporate Law Studies 1-41 (2019) and ‘Goldilocks (Control) and the Three Bears: Panel on Takeovers and Mergers v King‘ published online in the European Business Organization Law Review.

I also have a co-authored piece forthcoming in the March 2020 edition of the Cambridge Law Journal and recently co-authored an analysis piece in the Edinburgh Law Review.

I have authored several Oxford Business Law Blog posts, including most recently A COVID-19 Index Fund-The New Fearless Girl?

Finally, I have earlier publications (from my time as an undergraduate student in Scotland) in the Edinburgh Law Review and the Journal of Criminal Law. My work is also generally available on SSRN.

I am an academic member of the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI).
