University of Calgary
Associate Professor of Law
Calgary, Canada Area
I am an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Calgary. I spent almost ten years in the United Kingdom, where I completed my LLM and PhD at the London School of Economics and was a lecturer at the University of East Anglia Law School in IT, IP and media law. I research, consult and teach in the areas of information technology law, privacy, media law, intellectual property law and human rights. In a former life I practiced as a litigator, with particular experience in complex corporate and constitutional matters.

I have spoken about my research across Europe and North America to academics, government, civil society, practitioners, judges and the general public. My book, Regulating Speech in Cyberspace: Gatekeepers, Human Rights and Corporate Responsibility, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2015. I am currently an advisor to the Law Commission of Ontario concerning defamation law in the age of the internet.
