Reza's research lies in the areas of commercial and contract law. His thesis presents a comparative and normative analysis of the buyer's principal remedies in prominent legal regimes governing international sales transactions. He has presented several papers at well-known conferences, such as the Society of Legal Scholars (Edinburgh 2013) and the International Conference on Contracts (USA 2013, 2014). He has published a number of articles evaluating significant doctrines governing the remedies available to a commercial buyer in an international sales contract.
Reza is currently working on a research project concerning comparative analysis of American Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and United Nations Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods (CISG) versus English Sale of Goods Act (SGA). For this purpose, he will visit the Max Planck Institute (Hamburg, Germany) in summer 2017 to conduct an investigation on the latest developments of doctrine of anticipatory breach of contract under UCC and CISG versus its position under SGA. His central enquiry will be on the extent to which the relevant principles under English law should be modified to embrace and satisfy particular needs of commercial parties contracting in an international context.
