marta rychert, BA, LLM
Marta is a Post Doctoral Fellow at SHORE. Her research interests focus on legal aspects of regulating AOD (alcohol and other drugs). This includes new regulatory approaches to cannabis (recently witnessed in a number of US States, Canada and Uruguay), policy responses to new psychoactive substances (NPS, “legal highs”) and other psychoactive products such as alcohol, tobacco and e-cigarettes.
Her PhD critically analysed New Zealand’s Psychoactive Substances Act 2013 and its implementation process. Prior to joining SHORE, she interned at the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) in Lisbon, where she analysed drug policies of European Union countries. She holds a Master’s Degree in Law (University of Warsaw, Poland) and is awaiting her PhD Thesis examination at Massey University.
