She holds a Master’s degree in international relations/political science from Sciences Po Paris and one in public law from the University of Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne).

Prior to her doctoral studies, Leslie-Anne worked in various think tanks and research centres focusing on maritime and naval affairs, East Asian politics and conflict studies.

Leslie-Anne is currently working with Professor Viñuales on a three-year project entitled ‘The Law of Energy Transitions’ which investigates the legal consequences of the on-going transition to a low-carbon economy. Her other research interests lie in the legal framework relative to the protection of the marine environment and in the human rights approach to environmental damage.
