Public outreach & key achievements
My work has been published in a number of international peer-reviewed journals. In 2018 I was approved as a member of the Planning and Environmental Bar Association (PEBA), an association of barristers specialising in planning, environment, compulsory purchase and other aspects of local government and administrative law.
In 2019, I was nominated as a member of the World Commission on Environmental Law (WCEL) of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) by Justice Antonio Benjamin of the High Court of Brazil and I am also a member of the Commission's Climate Change Specialist Group.
The WCEL is a network of experts from across the world and serves as the principal source of technical legal advice to the IUCN, its members, and collaborating institutions on all aspects of environmental law.
