I am a Senior Lecturer 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

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. Empirical work which investigates these larger tendencies is focused on three areas of global political economy: (1) trade (WTO; NGOs and trade policy); (2) finance (City of London institutional politics); and (3) 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, 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).
