Jaime is currently conducting doctoral research into how international human rights can regulate multinational corporations via the US Alien Tort Statute up to and after the pending US Supreme Court case of Kiobel. He is especially interested in reconciling the state-centric nature of international law with the profound increase in power and influence of non-state actors.
Jaime sits as a postgraduate representative on the Staff Student Consultative Committee.
