Without freedom of thought, there can be no such thing as wisdom – Benjamin Franklin

As an international human rights lawyer with over 20 years’ experience, I have worked on some of the most challenging legal and political issues of our time including human rights and security, combating corruption in the developing world, protecting human rights at borders, the human rights impact of climate change and the impact of Brexit on individual rights and security. I have particular expertise in human rights and ethics in the field of technology and AI; oversight and accountability; and the protection of human rights in the small island context.

An expert on tech ethics through the lens of human rights, I bring legal expertise and a background in philosophy to the key ethical questions of our time writing and speaking on these issues. I am regularly asked to comment in the media on my areas of expertise.
