Julius' expertise lies in the regulation of risk, as well as in disaster-, nuclear- and environmental-law. At CSER, he works on the law and governance of extreme risks, asking what can be done to encourage risk-awareness without discouraging innovation. His other work covers dynamic fields of Japanese law, including civil and criminal liability, criminal trials, consumer protection, earthquake and tsunami law and particularly the Fukushima liability case, using a comparative, economic and socio-legal approach. Julius joined the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) in 2016 as a Research Associate, where he works on the project "Managing Extreme Technological Risk" under the direction of Dr Robert Doubleday and Prof Lord Martin Rees.
