Madeline Taylor

Academic Fellow, University of Sydney
Dr Taylor specialises in Energy and Natural Resources Law and specifically on the intersection between energy regulation, energy policy, and landholder rights. In particular, her research advances a novel examination of transitioning energy regulation from a comparative and socio-legal perspective, including the strategic governance of energy and the fragmentation of ownership rights between the state, corporations and landholders. She was awarded an Australian Postgraduate Scholarship and Dean’s Scholarship for her PhD thesis, ‘The Contestation between and Coexistence of Agricultural Land Protection and Coal Seam Gas Activities in Queensland, Australia’, examining the regulatory effectiveness of unconventional gas activities on priority agricultural areas in Queensland and British Columbia, Canada.

Her recent co-authored book entitled, Agricultural Land Use and Natural Gas Extraction Conflicts: A Global Socio-Legal Perspective, examines the socio-regulatory dimensions of coexistence between agricultural and onshore unconventional gas land uses in the jurisdictions with the highest concentration of proven unconventional gas reserves. Madeline also holds principle research interests in commercial and corporate law in the regulation of energy markets and LNG exports, energy security and transitions, and the legal relationship between agricultural land protection laws, food security and natural resource access and compensation arrangements.
