Current research

I am a postdoc on the Circular Supply Chains (CirCus) project investigating the legal risks of adopting extended producer responsibility and liability within private law and waste law to promote circular economies. This builds on my previous research within waste law, which has focused on: the role of regulations and policies in enabling industrial symbiosis; the implications of different property rights in waste; and how blockchain technology can be used to underpin and support waste regulations and policies
