About me

I joined Bristol Law School as Professor of Public International Law in July 2021. Prior to this, I worked at the University of Reading (2006–2021). I have been a visiting scholar at the University of Oxford (2017–2018) and the University of Michigan (2005).

I am the author of The Persistent Objector Rule in International Law (Oxford University Press, 2016), which was the winner of the European Society of International Law Book Prize 2017, and The International Court of Justice and Self-Defence in International Law (Hart Publishing, 2009), which was the winner of the Francis Lieber Prize 2010 awarded by the American Society of International Law. I also have edited three book collections, and authored numerous book chapters and articles published in leading journals around the world.

I am the co-editor-in-chief of the Journal on the Use of Force and International Law (Routledge), the co-rapporteur of the International Law Association's 'Use of Force: Military Assistance on Request' Committee, and sit on the Advisory Council for the Institute for International Peace and Security Law (Cologne, Germany). My research has been cited by, for example, the Supreme Court of Canada and the UN's International Law Commission. I am currently undertaking a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship, working on a major project on Collective Self-Defence.

Area of expertise

Public international law: the use of force (particularly self-defence), customary international law, the law relating to cyber warfare, nuclear non-proliferation law and space law.
