I joined the University of Edinburgh Law School in September 2014, and I research and teach courses on freedom of expression, media law and communications law.

Prior to joining the University of Edinburgh, I have been a researcher at the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policies of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies of the University of Oxford where I also helped to coordinate the Monroe Price Media Law Moot Court Competition.

I am currently a member of SCRIPT, a law and technology research centre based in the School of Law within the University of Edinburgh, a research associate at the University of Oxford’s Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy and a non-resident research fellow of the Central European University’s Center for Media, Data and Society.

Further to my academic activity, I have provided expertise on telecommunications and media law to a range of NGOs and international organisations, including the African Union's Mission to Somalia and the Council of Europe among others.
