Leslie-Anne Duvic-Paoli is a Philomathia Post-doctoral Research Associate in international energy law at the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG). She holds a Master’s degree in international relations/political science from Sciences Po Paris and one in public law from the University of Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne). Her doctoral dissertation, written at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, offers a comprehensive assessment of the prevention principle in international environmental law. At the Graduate Institute, Leslie-Anne was a teaching assistant within the LL.M. programme and gave tutorials in general public international law and international environmental law. Prior to her doctoral studies, Leslie-Anne worked in various think tanks and research centres focusing on maritime and naval affairs, East Asian politics and conflict studies. Leslie-Anne’s current research interests primarily lie in the legal aspects of the energy transition and of the climate change regime as well as in the nature and content of the fundamental principles of international environmental law. She is also interested in exploring the human rights approach to environmental damage and the legal framework relative to the protection of the marine environment.
