Dr Lifshitz is a leading voice in energy law and policy, and in property law and theory. Her research explores the diverse set of rules and institutions that govern access to resources, with a particular emphasis on energy governance. In her latest project, for example, she unearths the new type of energy governance that has emerged due to fundamental shifts in the generation of electricity in our world today.

At The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London, she teaches in property law, energy law and environmental law, including a module on Energy Transitions and Green Tech. She is a member of King's College London's Centre for Climate Law and Governance and Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law, and a fellow of the Guarini Center on Environmental, Energy and Land Use Law at New York University (NYU) Law School.

Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in the University of Toronto Law Journal, the NYU Law Review, Stanford Environmental Law Journal and UCLA Journal of Environmental Law & Policy, among other journals. She has presented her work at forums such as the American Law and Economics Association and at seminars and conferences at NYU, Yale, Michigan, Columbia, University of British Columbia and Tel Aviv University.
