Research Interests My research is centred around issues of distributive, social and environmental justice in the context of access to natural resources; the colonial roots of and alternatives to the current and pernicious version of neoliberal globalisation, and the multiple but ultimately linked trajectories of privilege and exclusion that led to the current environmental, economic and social crises.

I am interested in post-capitalism, circular economy and communing.

The transnational corporate actor, as the epitome of the neoliberal global techno-capitalist order and its ability to transcend regulatory control is central to my research.
Teaching and Learning I teach modules om;

Globalisation and Natural Resources Law
International Trade Law
Environmental Law

I am also the co-module leader for LLM dissertations and supervise dissertations and projects at undergraduate and postgraduate level
