She is author of the book Drafting Copyright Exceptions: From the Law in Books to the Law in Action (Cambridge University Press, 2020), and has been a regular speaker at the Copyright and Online Learning webinar series, including in relation to her copyright guidance on the use of audiovisual works in teaching.
