I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in International Political Economy at SOAS University of London. I previously taught at the University of Oxford, the London School of Economics, and the University of Exeter. I have held a Visiting Fellow position at the MaxPo Center at Sciences Po Paris.
All my research has been preoccupied with understanding the forms of power in capitalism, with a particular interest around the nexus between material and symbolic power. My core empirical work is focused on the political economy of the City of London as a major centre of global commerce. Prior research concentrated on two other areas of capitalism: (1) trade (WTO; NGOs and trade policy); and (2) ideology (neoliberalism, the politics of managerialism). My disciplinary location is within international political economy and international political sociology.
I am the author of Symbolic Power in the World Trade Organization (Oxford, 2013) and Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts (Routledge, 2016). I have published in Review of International Political Economy, New Political Economy, International Political Sociology, Competition & Change, EPA: Economy and Space, and Millennium: Journal of International Studies, among others. I received a DPhil (PhD) in International Relations from St Antony’s College, University of Oxford (ESRC Funded).
