My research and teaching interests are broad but generally fall within the orbit of International Political Economy conceived as a set of critical and interdisciplinary approaches. I am specifically concerned with analyzing the relationships between globalization and issues such as regionalism, monetary union, development, and ecology. Within this frame, recent work has focused on the rise of China; regionalism and the developmental state in South America; and European Monetary Union and the euro crisis. Part of my work critically engages with theories and practices of global economics governance and seeks to identify possibilities for effective and equitable global governance from the viewpoint of relatively marginalized interests around developmental states labour, social democracy, and political ecology.
A focus of my current research is on exploring possibilities for a post-neoliberal political economy and involves critical engagements with the work of Hayek, Keynes, Schumpeter and Marx as well as critical scholarship around these core thinkers. A recent article on Marx, Keynes and the political economy of money and crisis won the British Journal of Politics and International Relations Best Article prize (2013).
At the University of Lincoln, I am part of a team of academics exploring questions of policy failure and success in recent British politics.
I have taught modules in political economy and international political economy both at the University of Lincoln (where I am Reader) and University of Western Australia (where I am Adjunct Professor).
I share many of my teaching and research outputs online as a member of the academia.edu network.
