Personal profile

Personal information

Julia is a Brazilian enthusiast when it comes down to achieving equity among states. She is a PhD candidate in Law at NOVA School of Law (NSL), UNL, Portugal. Her PhD research focuses on unlocking IP constraints to transfer knowledge and technology, particularly ensuring access effectively and environmentally-friendly technology utilisation by least developed and developing countries. She holds a Master's degree in Law and Economics of the Sea, NSL, and a postgraduate degree in International Law from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil. Following her professional activity, she became an adviser for the Brazilian Delegation to the IGC-BBNJ in 2019. Her intense focus is on giving voice to the Global South - more than learning with experts, Julia wishes to be a turning point in designing the protection of marine biodiversity and building solid bridges among stakeholders. In this context, she, as an empowered researcher, has promoted and led bilateral meetings on genetic resources, capacity-building, and technology transfer, culminating in joint proposals for the BBNJ agreement's draft text. 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), which presented more than 150 lectures from Brazilian and international researchers, supported by live translation. She is part of the NOVA Knowledge Centre on Intellectual Property and Sustainability at NSL.
