My principle qualifications are my PhD in public international law, plus degrees in Law and Environmental Science, and a Diploma in Photography.

My doctoral research combined environmental science, ethics, policy and international law. I explored issues arising in the possible scenario of en masse cross-border migration of peoples from low-lying countries that are particularly challenged by climate change. My primary concern is how the relocation enterprise can be arranged in a way that it enables continuing enjoyment of the right to self-determination, both de jure and de facto; and shifting the narrative away from migration-based ideas that are analogous to lifestyle and economic migration, but risk the loss of cultures and languages.
