I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in International Political Economy and Deputy Director of the BSc in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) program in the School of Public Policy at University College London. Through mid-2018, I served as both Departmental Tutor and Director of the Affiliate Program in Political Science and International Relations. I am currently deputy director for the BSc in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. I received my doctorate from the University of California, San Diego.
My research interests cover a range of topics across international political economy and the quantitative social sciences. The two main themes in my research involve firms and politics in a global economy, and the role of institutional quality and configuration in shaping private-actors’ behaviors. I also work on a range of other subjects. The implications of my work are global in scope, but I have regional interests in East Asia and the United States. More information on both my published and ongoing projects can be found on the research pages of this site. Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in collaborating!
I teach International Political Economy at the undergraduate level and supervise BSc and MSc dissertation (thesis) students, that latter primarily in the Public Policy and International Public Policy programs. Information on the topics I supervise can be found on my teaching page, along with details regarding prospective PhD/MPhil supervision.
