His doctoral dissertation analyses whether an entitlement to protection from the adverse effects of scientific progress and its applications can be interpreted from Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and, if so, how the obligations that are created might be implemented. In particular, it focuses on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence as well as the use of climate science in climate litigation. Before undertaking his doctoral research, he was a barrister in criminal practice at the Bar of England and Wales for 15 years. He holds Masters degrees in law from King’s College, London, and the University of Copenhagen, and a Master of Letters degree from the University of Glasgow.
