Caroline joined Swansea University in 2017 after several years at the University of Southampton. Her research interests lie in Family Law and Health Care Law.

Caroline is particularly interested in the processes of production of law and its broader impact, especially with regard to test case litigation in Health Care Law. Recently, in this context, she has explored biographical approaches to the study of test cases with Jonathan Montgomery (UCL).  

In addition, she has an interest in the legal issues arising from the development and use of clinical decision support systems, and has been working with Jeremy Wyatt (Southampton) and James Thornton (Nottingham Trent) on projects in this area.  

Her earlier research focused on public policy formation and socio-legal constructions of parentage and kinship. She retains a keen interest in issues around donor conception, surrogacy, cloning, and the regulation of assisted conception more broadly.  

She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
