Research

My research interests focus upon two main areas. One is the law of obligations, comprising of contract, tort and unjust enrichment. I am particularly interested in remedies for civil wrongs, and in comparing the law of different jurisdictions. A major publication of mine in the area of civil remedies is the monograph Measuring Damages in the Law of Obligations: The Search for Harmonised Principles (Hart, 2010).

The other main area of my research interests is private international law (or conflict of laws). I am particularly interested in those rules of private international law that are relevant to international commercial transactions. I have published a number of journal articles in this area.

I am currently examining the assessment of damages for personal injury and death.

 

PhD Supervision:

I am interested in supervising PhD students who undertake research in any of the following areas: civil remedies; private international law in commercial disputes; transnational commercial law.
