Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in all aspects of the law of obligations in both Common Law and Civilian systems. Most of my research so far has been concerned with whether legal systems should modify their traditional rules for dealing with factual uncertainty when it comes to the requirement of causation in tort law.  In general, I hope to shed light on fundamental normative issues in the law of obligations whilst making concrete suggestions for the development of legal doctrine.

Research interests (short)

Law of obligations, tort law
