Danae Azaria joined the Faculty of Laws as a Lecturer in 2013. Since 2017, she is a Senior Lecture at UCL Laws. Her monograph, Treaties on Transit of Energy via Pipelines and Countermeasures (Oxford University Press, Oxford Monographs of International Law, 2015), was awarded (ex aequo) the 2016 Paul Guggenheim Prize in Public International Law.

A panel inspired by her monograph was included in the 110th Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) (2016) and was moderated by the author. 

From September to December 2016, Danae was a Visiting Fellow at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge. In 2016 and 2017, she was an expert of the UK delegation in the Sixth Committee of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly (GA) in relation to the work of the International Law Commission (‘ILC’). From May to July 2016, she was a Visiting Fellow at the University of Geneva, where she undertook research in relation to the work of the ILC. In 2013, she worked at the UN Office in Geneva (ILC), as legal assistant to the Special Rapporteur of the ILC, Georg Nolte (2013), and was a visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg on a scholarship from the Max Planck Society (2013). Previously, she has worked as a researcher at the Energy Charter Secretariat in Brussels (2009), and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (2006).  

Danae holds a PhD and LLM from UCL, a LLM from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, and completed her undergraduate studies in law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has received scholarships from the Hellenic State Scholarship Foundation and the Academy of Athens (the latter for her PhD studies).  Danae is an advocate of the Athens Bar Association. 

She collaborates as an academic advisor with law firms and industry, as well as numerous governmental departments and international organisations. Indicatively, since 2014, she has been a member of the Legal Advisory Task Force of the Energy Charter Secretariat. Since 2012, she has been a UK representative at the Management Committee of the Network of experts on the legal aspects of Maritime Safety and Security (MARSAFNET – COST Action IS1105) funded by the European Union, and a member of the Working Group on New Developments in Economic Activities at Sea.
