I am an Assistant Professor of Transnational Governance at the University of Amsterdam. From 2016-2019 I am also an ESRC FRL Fellow at the University of Warwick.
I work primarily within the disciplines of international political economy and economic sociology, with research interests in global financial governance, Chinese political economy, and the evolving nature of power in the global economy.
I hold a DPhil from the University of Oxford, where I was the Wai Seng Senior Research Scholar in Asia-Pacific Studies. Welcome!
