Personal information

Júlia is a PhD candidate in Law at NOVA School of Law (NSL), UNL. Her PhD research focuses on the transfer of marine technology, especially into the BBNJ context, and its role in enhancing the equity among States. She holds a Master's degree in Law and Economics of the Sea, NSL (18 to final grade), and a postgraduate degree in International Law, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (16/17 final grade). Following her professional activity, she became an adviser for the Brazilian Delegation to the IGC-BBNJ. In 2019, she co-organized a chapter (Annex) with researchers comments (including herself commentaries) on the BBNJ draft text. She promoted and led bilateral meetings on genetic resources and capacity-building and technology transfer, culminating in joint proposals for the agreement's draft text. During the 5th session, besides advising the Brazilian delegation, Julia built the bridge between the worlds of science and politics, connecting with scientists, including through the DOSI delegation. In addition, she received an invitation in January 2022 to integrate the bank of experts on the Law of the Sea and Ocean Governance of the Brazilian Navy. In the academic field, Julia co-organised the IV Brazilian Congress of Law of the Sea held by the Centre for Studies in Law of the Sea 'Vicente Marotta Rangel' of the University of São Paulo (USP), under the scientific supervision of Professor Dr Wagner Menezes. The event presented more than 150 lectures from Brazilian and international researchers, supported by live translation. Besides the Brazilian centre, Julia is a researcher at the NOVA Ocean Knowledge Centre at NSL.
