About me

Appointed Chair in Energy Law in July 2016, I was previously also a tenured Professor of Law at Flinders University in South Australia for 7 years, where I retain Adjunct status. Prior to then, I was Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, Chinese University of Hong Kong (2007-2010). I have also worked at law schools in Galway, Exeter and Tasmania; business schools in South Australia; practiced as an advisory lawyer at the Environment Agency of England and Wales; and in mainly litigious private practice in England and Australia.

I was educated in England, Scotland and Tasmania, and hold degrees in Arts (York BA Hons, Politics), Laws (Aberdeen LLM Environmental Law), and Philosophy (Tasmania PhD). After completing the Law Society Common Professional and Finals Examinations and two years articles of clerkship with a firm in Surrey, UK, I was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales. I was subsequently admitted as a Legal Practitioner (Barrister and Solicitor) of the Supreme Court of Tasmania, Australia.

I specialise in international, comparative and national environmental and energy law, and the relationship between law and politics. As an interdisciplinary scholar,I have a keen interest in global governance, constitutionalism and regions and sub-regions, particularly in Asia, Australasia, Europe and at the Poles. I am currently working on a book entitled Energy, Environment and the Third Pole: Legal Transplants and Wild Law (under contract Edward Elgar, 2018)
