My most immediate research interests are located at the intersection of critical theory, law and ecology, with particular focus on international environmental law and ecosystem governance. I am particularly interested in genealogy as a method of critical legal analysis, and in biopolitics as a theoretical register for reading environmental law.
Current research focuses on 1) ocean commons, both at the theoretical level and in relation the ongoing negotiations towatds a treaty marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction and on the interaxction between space law and law of the sea 2) on critical histories of sovereignty and (international) legal modernity more broadly 3) on critical legal ocean studies, with increasing focus on critical legal geography
