Research Output per year
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 have currently concluded a PhD proposal looking to examine the theory of self determination and its effect on sustainability within the Arctic and environmental law. This has fed into my research examining the concept of intergenerational equity and transgenerational conflicts.
Area of Expertise:
- Environmental Law within the context of the Arctic.
- Indigenous Peoples within the context of sustainable development
- Contemporary challenges of Arctic Geopolitics
