Stillingsbeskrivelse:

I am a PhD research fellow at the Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea (NCLOS), researching the role of science in the law of the sea. My PhD position is part of an inter-faculty project at UiT: Arctic Ocean Technology and Law of the Sea Research (ATLAR).

I have two LLM degrees, one in public international law from Leiden University and one in the law of the sea from UiT - The Arctic University of Norway. I completed the Rhodes Academy of Oceans Law and Policy in 2017. Prior to starting my PhD, I was a legal intern at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in Hamburg (2016), and an intern at the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations in Geneva (2015).




Forskningsinteresser

My research interests concern public international law, and more specifically, the law of the sea. I am especially interested in the interaction between law and science (within the law of the sea), but also marine scientific research, maritime delimitation, and the legal regime for the continental shelf. Other interests include environmental law, indigenous peoples' rights, the whaling regime, and the legal framework for the Arctic. 

My PhD position is part of an inter-faculty project at Uit: Arctic Ocean Technology and Law of the Sea Research (ATLAR). The project involves the Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea (formerly known as JCLOS), the Department of Arctic and Marine Biology (AMB), the Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE), and the Centre for Integrated Remote Sensing and Forecasting for Arctic Operations (CIRFA).

I am a member of an interdisciplinary research school for PhD students, concerning authoritative texts and their reception (ATTR).
