Mariela Eletti de Amstalden, Dr.iur (Lucerne), LL.M (VU Amsterdam), MLaw (Lucerne): I am a legal academic currently on research sabbatical at the Scottish Centre for IP and IT Law (SCRIPT), University of Edinburgh Law School, where I focus on the legal implications of cultured meat and trademark rights for international trade. Prior to this, I held appointments as Senior Lecturer in Public Law at the University of St. Gallen (HSG), as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia, Peter A. Allard Law School, and as Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Law. I also previously held visiting positions at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, University of Cambridge and at the Institute for International Economic Law, Georgetown University. Alongside private practice experience with Schellenberg Wittmer and CMS Erlach Poncet in their dispute resolution departments located in Zurich, I consulted for the Swiss Department of Public Health and UNITAR, Knowledge Systems Department on issues related to trade in foodstuffs and sustainable development law, respectively. My main body of scholarship focuses on biotechnologies, food and public health regulation at the intersection with international economic law and global governance.
