Ideas:
“  My research focuses on International Environmental and Energy Law. I am particularly interested in Climate Change Law and Policy, including climate justice, sustainable development, and the role of science in climate governance. My additional research interests, which are informed by my previous practice as an international litigator, include International Arbitration and Law & Development. Ultimately, my research uses Law and Economics (more specifically, cost-benefit analysis) and Comparative Law methodologies to address contemporary pressing legal challenges.  ”
