Personal profile

Research interests

Since September 2022 I am the Principal Investigator in the ERC Starting Grant 2021 funded project 'TransLitigate: The Agency of Transnational Strategic Litigators in Global Environmental Governance'. The project combines doctrinal and qualitative socio-legal methods to study the transnational collaborative networks of strategic litigators work on climate change, pollution from the extractive industries, biodiversity conservation, and land conflicts. The project is situated within the broader Constitutionalizing in the Anthropocene research community at Tilburg Law School.

Previous to TransLitigate, my research focused on the role of social and environmental auditors and standard setting bodies in global sustainability governance.
