I am a PhD student at the university of Northumbria. I hold a LLM in International Human Rights Law and a BA in Philosophy with Legal Studies from Sussex University. 

I have also worked as a co-researcher with Birmingham University on the SWAN project exploring sex workers health needs and advising policy makers on how to provide sex workers with better access to healthcare.

I currently organise and run the PGR sex work research network.
