Elisabeth joined our Brussels office in December 2015 to work on controland Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing issues.


Prior to joining ClientEarth, she worked from 2008 to 2010 on the implementation of the EU IUU Regulation at the European Commission, in the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE). Then, she joined the biodiversity programme of the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) from 2011 to 2014 to work on the governance of marine biodiversity in the high seas. She also carried out independent research projects on oceans governance and open data issues.
