I am an early-career environmental law researcher looking into how 'law' addresses the limitations of 'science' in predicting the impact of energy-transitional technology on the environment. In doing so, my PhD project uses the legal transplants method of comparative law to highlight the movement and contextual reshaping of the precautionary principle in different legal systems by focusing on the case study of hydraulic fracturing (fracking).
My PhD research is funded by the Faculty of Arts and Social Science at the University of Surrey. Before this, I was a visiting researcher with the Centre for Energy, Petroleum & Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) at the University of Dundee, Scotland. I have completed my LLM (with distinction) from Central European University (CEU), Austria. CEU fully funded his research-based LLM.
Thesis: Comparative Dimensions of ‘Water’ As “Shared Competence” In Cooperative Federalist Structures of the US, India, And Australia: A Case Study of Regulating Fracking-Specific Water Risks
