Chiara's research focuses on environmental law, with special attention to the law and policy of climate change at EU and International level.

She has a particular interest in the role of law in the governance of climate change mitigation technologies (I.e. wind energy, geoengineering and carbon capture and storage). In this area, Chiara's work focuses on public participation in decision-making on climate change technologies and the role of law in driving participatory processes.

Chiara is also interested in experimentalist governance approaches in environmental and climate change law.
