I am an Associate Professor of Public International Law at the University of Exeter and the Director of the Exeter Centre for International Law. My work focuses mainly on international conflict and security law and questions of operational law, including the law of armed conflict, the legal status of foreign armed forces and the application of human rights law in deployed operations. I have published widely in leading academic journals on status of forces agreements, peace support operations and the legal aspects of European security and defence policy.
I maintain close working relationships with legal practitioners in the armed forces and lecture regularly on the subject of international law and military operations in the UK and abroad. I am a Fellow of Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe and a Fellow of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps.
