Personal profile

Research interests

I began teaching at Bond University in 2008. Prior to that, after receiving my JD from Columbia Law School in New York City, where I was Head Notes Editor of the Columbia Journal of Transnational Law, I spent 9 years as an associate at the Wall Street law firm, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP.

I worked primarily in commercial litigation, where I represented corporate clients including large banks, insurance companies, and venture capital funds in litigations and arbitrations in various arenas including the New York, California,and Texas state and federal courts. My matters included the representation of two well known banks in the French Banks Holocaust Litigation filed in the EDNY federal court, for which I spent substantial time in France. Among my other matters, I also spent over 130 days in trial on two high-profile reinsurance arbitrations, with successful outcomes in both.

Previously, I was a summer associate at another large New York law firm and completed internships for a federal judge in the District of New Jersey; a midsized Swiss law firm in Geneva, Switzerland; and in the United States Congress, Washington, DC, in the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Affairs of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

My current research focuses on the corporate governance of government business enterprises. I have published and presented at conferences in this area, and I am currently pursuing my PhD on this topic at the University of Queensland.
