Research biography

Starting as a Grand Challenge Research Fellow from 2020, my current work focuses on legal issues in relation to the energy transition. There are three specific topics:

1. The principle of technology neutrality in renewable energy technology regulation;

2. Using green certification as a way of regulation in the area of renewable energy (e.g. the green hydrogen certification) and green finance.

3. Rule complex at the intersection of trade and environment.
