I am a Senior Associate Teacher in Environmental Law, University of Bristol Law School, where I am also currently researching for a PhD in Environment, Energy & Resilience. I am also a consultant in Regional Environmental Law at University of the South Pacific.
My research interests are in climate law & policy, environmental law, EU, public international law, human rights & social justice theory. My PhD research, specifically, explores the capacity of international human rights law and state responsibility to provide recourse to justice to climate vulnerable states and communities, taking into account the challenges faced in practice including loss & damage, institutional capacity, and access to justice, to construct a climate justice framework informing future law & policy-making.
I graduated with an LL.B. (Hons) from the University of Warwick in European Law (ICP) which incorporated a year of legal study abroad at the Université Lille 2 in France and the Universität des Saarlandes in Germany. I have been awarded a Master II in Comparative European Law by the Université Lille 2, an Advanced LL.M. in Public International Law by Leiden University's Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies and an MRes in Environment, Energy & Resilience by the University of Bristol.
