Mara Wendebourg is a PhD candidate at The Dickson Poon School of Law under the supervision of Dr Leslie-Anne Duvic-Paoli. Her doctoral research encompasses international climate change law, looking at how risk and uncertainties related to climate change are interpreted in both science and law and how this may influence the effectiveness of the current normative framework. Mara holds a BSc in Earth and Environmental Sciences and an LLM in Environmental Law and Law of the Sea from the Utrecht University and an MSc in Marine Systems and Policies from the University of Edinburgh. As testified through her interdisciplinary background, her interests lay at the intersection of law and science. Prior to starting her PhD, Mara was an intern at the International Seabed Authority and subsequently worked as a trainee at the European Commission in the Directorate General on Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, in the Unit on Law of the Sea, Ocean Governance and Arctic Policy. She has been a volunteer for Legal Response International, is a senior editor at the King's Student Law Review and co-organises the Climate Law and Governance Reading Group.
