Eva Romée van der Marel is a Research Fellow and Ph.D. Candidate at the K.G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea. Her Ph.D. research project focuses on the EU as a global actor in sustainable fishing, and in particular the role and impact of EU trade measures to combat IUU fishing.
Before joining the K. G. Jebsen Centre, Eva studied English and French law (LLB), EU law (maîtrise) and Environmental Law and Policy (LLM). She then worked as a research assistant on the Carbon Capture Legal Programme (University College London), as well as on the EU funded project ‘Beyond 2020’ on the future EU renewable energy policy (University of Oxford). Her research interests include international and EU environmental law, and the law of the WTO.
Eva enjoys playing the cello. Despite writing about the law of the sea, she has no interest in water-related activities and prefers rock climbing, hiking and cross-country skiing to swimming, surfing or sailing.
