I am a critical political economist with an approach to research and teaching informed by various strands of critical social theory. I studied for all of my degrees at the University of Leeds (1996-2005), before commencing a postdoctoral fellowship at Trinity College Dublin. After returning to the UK I worked at a number of universities before starting my current post in August 2013. I am the Managing Editor for the cross-disciplinary Transforming Capitalism book series published by Rowman & Littlefield International, and I am on the Editorial Board for the journal Art & the Public Sphere. Also, I was the Chair of the Critical Political Economy Research Network of the European Sociological Association from 2009-13, and am now on CPERN's International Advisory Board.

On past activities, from 2010-15 I was on the Governing Board of the European International Studies Association, in the process acting as one of the two programme chairs for both the 2013 and 2015 EISA conferences. From 2012-14 I was the Chair of the Book Prize panel of judges for the International Political Economy Group of the British International Studies Association, and from 2011-15 I was part of the editorial team for the Routledge/RIPE Series in Global Political Economy.
