Flora joined Kent Law School in 2017 as a Lecturer. Flora was previously a Lecturer in the Law School at City, University of London. Flora’s research interests lie broadly in the area of gender, sexuality and law and the legal regulation of identities.
From 2012 to 2017 Flora undertook a University of Kent funded PhD at KLS. Flora’s thesis was entitled ‘The Gender Recognition Act 2004 and Transgender People's Legal Consciousness’ and was an interdisciplinary examination of the regulation of gender identity in England and Wales. This research drew on empirical data, feminist and queer theory, and socio-legal methods.back to top

Flora’s research is concerned with the legal regulation of (trans)gender identities and sexuality in society and broader questions focusing on the interface between structural inequalities, law, gender, sexuality, and emotion.
Flora is currently a Co-I with Professors Davina Cooper (PI), Emily Grabham and Elizabeth Peel on an ESRC funded socio-legal project asking whether government should retain the current system of a legal gender assigned at birth.back to top
