Emma Aisbett is a Fellow at ANU School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) and Associate Director, Research for ANU Grand Challenge – Zero Carbon Energy for the Asia Pacific.

Emma’s previous research spans economic globalisation, environmental policy, developing countries, and political economy. She is best known for her work on international investment agreements where she has influenced both academic debate and policy. On this topic, Emma has been an invited expert at both the OECD and the UN Commission on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). She is also an approved supplier of policy advice to developing countries through the UK Governments TAF2+ initiative.

As Associate Director, Research for the ANU Zero-Carbon Energy Grand Challenge, Emma uses her interdisciplinary background to enable social and physical scientists, legal scholars, and engineers create the inter- and trans-disciplinary research necessary to solve wicked problems. Her own research on the project focuses on trade and investment aspects – particularly the evolution of necessary international economic law and international political economy considerations.
