He teaches a course on International Intellectual Property Law which critically examines intellectual property in the context of international law. He also teaches another course on Intellectual Property and Human Rights which critically explores the interface and tensions between these two fields. These two courses broadly reflect and build on his research expertise.
He welcomes PhD proposals on topics relating to international intellectual property law especially topics that examine the interface between intellectual property and other areas of international law including, but not limited to, investment law and trade law. He also welcomes proposals on topics examining the interface and tensions between intellectual property and human rights.
