Environmental Law

International Law

Natural Resources

My professional focus lies in environmental, energy, natural resources, human rights, and international law. Presently, I am deeply engaged in navigating the intersections of environmental, energy, and regulatory domains throughout project life cycles. Additionally, I’m interested on responsive independent accountability mechanisms aimed at facilitating the resolution of concerns and grievances of project-affected parties. In this regard I have extensive experience on environmental impact assessment procedures and public engagement mechanisms, from the private and public perspective.

I have a keen interest in continuing advancing the pivotal role of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) frameworks, stakeholder engagement, the right to a healthy environment, and delving into topics such as climate engineering and energy infrastructure. In fact, my academic work scrutinizes regulatory structures and their efficacy in addressing appropriate public engagement mechanisms to ensure a timely just transition and climate change governance.

I’m deeply committed to advancing integrated environmental and social risk solutions and fostering dialogue on pressing environmental and regulatory issues. Let’s connect to explore potential collaborations or share insights on these critical topics!
