Before joining The City Law School in August 2016 Flora worked at the University of Kent as Assistant Lecturer in Law. Flora currently teaches Criminal Law and Criminal Justice. Their research is concerned with the legal regulation of (trans)gender identities and sexuality in society and broader questions to do with the interface between structural inequalities, law, gender, sexuality, and gender identity.
Ph.D. in Law University of Kent (final stages), M.Res. in Social Science Research Methods (Law) Keele University, LL.B. University of Leeds.
My research is located at the intersection of socio-legal theory, law, gender and sexuality, feminist theory, jurisprudence, human rights and queer theory.
