Academic biography

I am an Assistant Professor in Law (with tenure) at the DCU School of Law and Government. My primary research interests are Carbon Pricing, International Maritime Transport, and Climate Change Law. 

I am currently the PI of a World Bank-funded project on the implementation of carbon pricing in international shipping and of a United Nations Foundation grant on the same topic. In 2022, I was awarded a grant by the Irish Aid Enterprise Fund for International Climate Action to provide training on carbon pricing in international shipping to members of delegations to the International Maritime Organization. 

My research on carbon pricing has been cited in the Financial Times (behind paywall), the Guardian, and France24, and has been awarded prizes by various institutions, including the MIT Climate CoLab (Honorable Mention), ELPAR (Honorable Mention), and the World Bank (Vice President Team Award). 

My research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals (eg, Climate Policy, Journal of Environmental Law, Marine Policy) American law reviews (eg, Arizona Law Review) and policy outlets. I am one of the authors of the World Bank reports Carbon Revenues from International Shipping: Enabling an Effective and Equitable Transition, and Distributing Carbon Revenues from Shipping. I was a member of the team that wrote the World Bank flagship report State and Trends of Carbon Pricing 2019. 

I presented my research in various policy fora, including the International Maritime Organization, the OECD/ITF, and the World Bank.
