Tom joined our London office in January 2016 as an economics and legal advisor within the Biodiversity team.
Before joining ClientEarth, Tom completed a PhD at the University of Nottingham School of Law. His thesis analysed the various methods by which rights can be used to protect the natural world within international law. This included looking at a human right to a healthy environment, and the establishment of rights of nature. Tom has also had work published on environmental justice and climate change, and on theories of valuation within international environmental law. Previously, he studied for an MSc in Law and Environmental Science (Nottingham) and a BSc in Mathematics (Warwick).
While in Nottingham, Tom was a trustee of Ecoworks, a local community garden based charity connecting people to their land, their food, and each other.
