Personal profile

Research interests

I write critically on international human rights law, with particular reference to how it serves to buttress the power of the state. My most recent work has focused on understanding international human rights law as a discourse which produces its subject, the human individual, as 'vulnerable' and in need of the state's protection and largesse. I am now developing a critique of human rights as a technocracy which seeks to reduce the human subject to a manipulable dataset. 


I have been working in academia since 2012, teaching and researching in the fields of international human rights law, public international law, and the law of contract. Before that, I was a Japanese-English legal translator.
