Kim teaches climate change and energy law, environmental law and English tort law. Kim has taught in various institutions in England, South Africa and Australia, including UCL (London and Australia) and Kings College London. At Strathclyde, she co-convenes and teaches the course on English tort law. She also contributes to teaching on climate change law and global environmental law. Kim is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Kim’s research interests lie in energy and climate change law, climate change litigation and English private law. Kim’s PhD research examined the limits and potential of tort for problems in energy efficient buildings, and asserting the significance of such disputes as part of a polycentric response to climate change. The thesis illustrated some problematic aspects of the invisibility and incompatibility of climate change issues in mundane private disputes. Kim’s thesis was completed at UCL and passed without corrections in September 2016. Kim is particularly interested in litigation in the context of climate change, and the regulation and governance of energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. She is currently completing a research paper which examines future directions in climate change litigation.
At Strathclyde, Kim works as a researcher on the BENELEX project team. Her contribution to the project involves the exploration of fair and equitable benefit- sharing in the international climate change regime. Kim’s initial work in the project will investigate the extent to which benefit-sharing is reflected in the fast-developing area of climate finance.
