Ben Milligan joined the Faculty in February 2012 and is currently a Research Associate at the Centre for Law and Environment. He was formerly a Researcher and PhD candidate at the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security, University of Wollongong, and has held Visiting positions at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, George Washington University and University of Cambridge.

Ben's research focuses on oceans governance, international environmental policy and public international law. He has provided consultancy services to clients including the PEW Charitable Trusts, Australian Government ministries, Crown Estate, Commonwealth Secretariat, and the African Caribbean and Pacific Group of States.

In June 2011 Ben was awarded a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship by the AXA Research Fund. His postdoctoral research project is entitled 'Binding blue carbon: developing global legal and policy responses to an emerging risk of climate change.' The term ‘blue carbon’ refers to carbon stored, sequestered and released from the ocean’s vegetated habitats, including mangroves, tidal marshes, and sea-grass beds. Recent scientific studies have drawn attention to the critical role played by these ecosystems in regulating climate change.
