Research Interests

My research interests lie in the areas of regulatory crime and competition law. I am interested in all areas relating to the criminalisation of regulatory offences. More specifically, my research looks at the justifications for invoking criminal law sanctions in non-traditional areas, and the practical implications of criminalising "white collar crimes".
