    Personal profile




    I joined Coventry University in September 2016 as a lecturer in law, having worked as a research assistant on the award winning Sino-UK Commercial Law LLB Programme. Since then I have published research within the field of Environmental Law and Energy, a relatively small field at Coventry I am seeking to expand.

    As a student I spent a significant amount of time at the Orebro University in Sweden, studying and researching human rights and international refugee law. As a post graduate I studied international Law with a focus on International Environmental Law. I have also benefitted from working with world leading consultants in energy law, even providing a legal opinion for an arbitration in Brazil.



    I am interested in all matters concerning the Arctic and it's relation to the international order within the context of climate change. I am currently undertaking research into the governance of geoengineering and its relationship with the participation of indigenous peoples. The specific focus is on how geoengineering governance will affect indigenous participatory rights.
