Career Summary

Biography

I have worked as a lawyer in private practice for 12 years including as a partner of a interstate commercial law firm. I have also worked as a senior legal advisor to the Federal Government. I teach into the Environmental Law, Public Environmental Law and Contracts courses in the Law School. My current research interests are in international climate change law and policy, international environmental law and the insights that international relations theory can bring to international law. I have recently published articles in Global Change Peace and Security, Colorado Journal of International Environmental Law and Policy, International Environmental Agreements; Politics, Law, Economics and McGill Journal of International Sustainable Development law and Policy.
