Biography

Prior to returning to Sheffield to commence my PhD I practised as a solicitor for two years, qualifying into the environmental and planning law team of an international law firm.
My academic qualifications as follows:
BA in American Studies, University of Sheffield
MA in English Literature (Distinction), University of Sheffield
MA in Law (Distinction), University of Sheffield
Legal Practice Course, University of Sheffield

Scope of Research

My current research involves a case study of a city centre retail-led urban regeneration scheme that investigates the negotiation and agreement of development contracts between local authorities and property development companies. I am keen to develop a wider understanding of the manner in which the legal framework provided by those agreements functions in practice.
