As a PhD candidate in Warwick's School of Law, I am developing my law Ph.D thesis in the field of equality rights legislations in the UK. The thesis is on the Public Sector Equality Duty in the UK; the critical analysis from the reflexive regulation perspective. This project began  from my experience, expertise and collaboration with the wider research communities based in the Midlands. Whilst studying I have continued to work in the legal sector building a vast portfolio in a variety of areas  of law. Specifically, my legal experience has focused on Employment and Commercial litigation matters. I obtained extensive training in variety  of legal and business environments throughout my education and career.

In 2015 I completed my Qualifying Law LLB with Hons degree, which focused on gaining practical experience through both business and commercial environments on various placements. During my LLB I achieved first class marks in many projects which I was involved in on the Legal Advice and Representation Unit. I consider myself as a proactive team player and independent in my approach on all my projects I complete. My focus has to been to help shed light in communities that are statistically at a disadvantage in gaining equal and just access to the law.
