Amelia joined the Faculty of Law at UNSW in 2012, having worked previously with governments and NGOs in Australia and internationally. She has worked on issues including climate change and urban form, adaptation, REDD, geo-engineering, geo-sequestration, climate litigation, development and corruption risks associated with climate change, as well as UNFCCC negotiations. Amelia's current research focuses on the urban environment, and the role of the law in shaping cities and suburbs. She is particularly interested in ways in which legal frameworks can be structured to engage the public in urban mitigation efforts and in building climate resilience in cities.
