I am an art law specialist and independent due diligence consultant. I teach Art and Cultural Property Law at Kingston University and Christie's Education, and am a co-organiser of the annual Art and Cultural Heritage Crime Conference held at New York University.
I authored the 2nd Ed. RICS Guidance Note on Selling Personal Property at Auction and have provided specialist training and support to government agencies and law enforcement units on cases in the UK, US, Australia and across Europe. I have previously held research and recovery roles at the Art Loss Register, Art Recovery Group and Art Vérité. In 2013 I became Moderator of the Museum Security Network which monitors and circulates information on art and cultural heritage risk management.
My research focuses on cultural property protection initiatives (past and present) and explores the legal, ethical and market implications of art loss, damage and recovery.
