I am a Lecturer in International Political Economy in the Department of International Politics. Before joining City I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University, and a Fellow in International Political Economy in the Department of International Relations at the LSE.

My research focuses on corporate power and inequality in global finance, and has been published in New Political Economy, Socio-Economic Review, and the European Journal of International Relations.
