Eva R van der Marel
Eva is employed as associate professor in law at UiT (fullltime), with primary teaching duties on the LLM in the law of the sea and the Joint Nordic Master Programme in Environmental Law (NOMPEL), as well as the new interdisciplinary Ocean leadership masters. Eva also continues to be affiliated as parttime researcher at the University of Oxford, working on the Oxford Martin School's "Future of Plastics" project, which examines how to best move towards a more sustainable plastics economy. Her research interests are international environmental law and the law of the sea, and fisheries in particular.
Eva obtained her PhD in law from UiT (January 2020), where she previously worked at the former K. G. Jebsen Centre (now, Norwegian Centre) for the Law of the Sea. Following this, she joined the European Commission (DG MARE) in Brussels, working on various law of the sea and fisheries related matters, and in particular, the fisheries subsidies negotiations at the WTO in Geneva, and the EU Arctic policy. She left this position to do a postdoc at the Univeristy of Oxford, before returning to Tromsø in January 2023 as associate professor.
Eva also holds an LLM in Environmental Law and Policy from UCL, a maitrise in European law from the University of Rennes 1, and an LLB (English and French law) from Exeter University.
Eva enjoys life above and below water, and this is reflected in both her research and general interests, which include windsurfing, climbing, trail running, back-country skiing, and diving in plastic-free oceans.
