Personal profile

Research interests

My current research focuses on transnational environmental and labour governance. In particular, I focus on the transjurisdictional diffusion of strategic litigation related to climate change, supply chain liability and land grabs. My previous research has focused on intersections between transnational private regulatory regimes and public law.
