Danilo is also member of the IUCN's World Commission on Environmental Law (Climate Change specialists and Early Career groups) and of the Global Business and Human Rights Scholars Association, as well as a reporter for OUP's Oxford Reports on International Law in Domestic Courts. His research interests include Business and Human Rights, Global Governance, International Environmental Law, and Public International Law, and he has co-submitted evidence to the UK Parliament on those topics.
Danilo holds an LL.M. in International Law from the University of Cambridge (First Class, Hugh Bevan Award), where he edited the Cambridge International Law Journal, and an LL.B. from the University of Brasília, Brazil, where he has also been admitted to the Bar (OAB). He speaks English, Portuguese and Spanish, and has working knowledge of German and French.
In his free time, Danilo enjoys making music, tweeting, using the Oxford comma, and writing in the third person.
