Biography

I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in International Political Economy in the School of Public Policy at UCL, where I was appointed in 2013, after receiving my PhD from the University of California, San Diego. I served as the Departmental Tutor and Director of the Affiliate Programme in Political Science and International Relations from 2015-2018.

Research

My research broadly examines the empirical micro-foundations of international political economy. My work tends to focus on the interactions between political and economic institutions and the incentives, preferences, and activities of private-sector actors, such as firms. I typically explore these phenomena in the context of the globalization of production and the politics and policies governing it. While the implications of my work are frequently global in scope, I also tend to focus on political-economy issues in East Asia or the United States.
