We are proud to announce that Dr Alice Pirlot has joined the Kluwer International Tax Blog’s team as an editor, responsible for the new section of the blog dedicated to Environmental Taxation.
Dr Pirlot, who defended her doctoral thesis at the University of Louvain in 2016, is currently a Research Fellow in Law at the Centre for Business Taxation, Oxford. Her research focuses on environmental taxation and the interaction between tax and World Trade Organization law.
In the past, she has been a visiting researcher at the WU Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law (Austria), the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance (Germany), the School of Economics and Management of Lund University (Sweden) and the Levin College of Law of the University of Florida (the United States).
Alice has been awarded various prizes and scholarships, including the InBev-Baillet Latour scholarship, FNRS doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships and grants from the Belgian International Youth Office.
