Biography

I am a PhD candidate researching the application of the European Convention on Human Rights to the United Kingdom’s ‘Targeted Killing’ policy. The thesis examines the key human rights issues resulting from the UK’s decision to incorporate armed drones within its counter-terrorism framework. Although the research focuses on the UK’s ‘targeted killing’ policy, the legal analysis is also relevant to other European States, who may embrace similar policies.
