My research has two overarching strands. 

The first of these focuses on the politics of housing systems. Here, I am particularly interested in the changing role of states and markets at both the international and domestic levels. 

The second of these focuses on the politics of institutional change in global economic governance. Here, I aim to explore what drivers operational change in institutions including the IMF and World Bank.

I am keen to supervise PhD candidates in these and associated areas of (international) Political Economy and Public Policy. Please see relevant sections of the Department webpages, and drop me a line.
