I am a permanent Assistant Professor in Law at the DCU School of Law and Government. I have an LLM from Yale Law School and a PhD from Erasmus University Rotterdam (European Doctorate in Law and Economics).  My primary research interests are Climate Change Law and Policy and Behavioral Law & Economics. 

I am currently the PI of a World Bank-funded project on carbon pricing in international maritime transport and border carbon adjustments.

I have held visiting research positions at Cornell Law School, Copenhagen University, UC Louvain. I frequently consult for various units of the World Bank (headquarter, Washington DC).

My research has appeared in international peer-reviewed journals, American law reviews, and policy outlets. I am the author of Biased Trials: Insights from Behavioral Law and Economics (Springer/Gabler, 2020), and I was a member of the team that wrote the World Bank flagship report State and Trends of Carbon Pricing 2019

My research has been awarded prizes from various institutions, including the MIT Climate CoLab, Yale Law School, and the World Bank. I often present his work at policy workshops in Europe and the US.
