Personal profile

Research Focus

My research focus falls broadly in international law and international legal theory, particularly the areas of the law of the sea, international institutions, global governance and the institutional structure of the international legal order. I am particularly interested in projects that span these fields, especially on the regulation and governance of maritime zones, international institutions in the maritime / ocean space, as well as questions of authority and legitimacy in international law and institutions more broadly.


I am the Dean of Internationalisation and Engagement in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS).
