Dr Madeline Taylor is a Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University, School of Law. Madeline’s expertise includes issues at the complex nexus of energy, law, and policy.
Her current research focuses on the law concerning energy conflicts, landholder rights, and the protection of sensitive land uses. Her publications advance a novel multi-disciplinary 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 has published widely examining issues of energy regulation, including her recent co-authored manuscript, Agricultural Land Use and Natural Gas Extraction Conflicts: A Global Socio-Legal Perspective (Routledge, 2019), examining 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 has held positions at the University of Sydney, University of Queensland, University of British Columbia, and Bond University throughout her academic career.
