Aurea joined the World Justice Project after obtaining her Master of Laws in Environmental Law and Policy from Stanford Law School.
She is passionate about the convergence of environmental and energy policies. To her, sustainable access to energy is only possible if the environment is the key driver. She is also interested in the role of energy in the water and food value chains, and in marine-powered applications for desalination, aquaculture and other markets in the context of climate change.
She previously worked as Legal Director of Generation and Grids at Mexico's Energy Regulatory Commission, where she provided legal advice to multiple participants of the energy industry on issues related to long-term power auctions, interconnection disputes, clean energy certificates, and grid reliability standards.
In her spare time, Aurea enjoys practicing yoga, hiking, and visiting museums.
