Isabelle joined the University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Organization for Programs on Environmental Sciences in 2017. After a doctorate in Public International Law (University of Paris II Panthéon-Assas, 1999) and a post-doctorate in Comparative Environmental Law (University of Tokyo, Graduate School for Law and Politics, 2000-2001), she taught at Niigata University (2001-2004), Tohoku University (2004-2008), and Nagoya University (2012-2016). Between 2008 and 2012, she was a research fellow at the French Research Institute on Japan (Maison franco-japonaise, Tokyo) established by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and associated with the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).

Environmental legal studies, climate change law, disaster law, and critical legal thought are her main teaching areas.

Isabelle’s main research interests relate to Law and/in the AnthropoceneHer current research explores how the converging fields of climate change law and disaster law engage with the ‘Anthropocene’ thought experiment. With a view to enriching the discussion on science, technology and legal reasoning in an era of climate disruption, her most  recent research proposal examines the skills, competences, and knowledge that different types of lawyers (attorneys, in-house counsels, government lawyers) can mobilize, both in their contentious and non-contentious legal practice, to address the continuously rising risk of more frequent and higher-impact disasters in Japan.
