Research Statement

I work in the areas of comparative and international politics with a primary interest in the political economy of development and energy markets. This research has mainly been focussed on sub-Saharan Africa and the post-colonial world, but incorporates more recently also aspects of US politics.

My research at Queen's has been funded by the ESRC World Economy and Finance Research Programme, the British Academy, the Nuffield Foundation and the DfE Global Challenges Research Fund. Publications indicative of my key research interests have appeared in journals such as Political StudiesPolitical GeographyBusiness & SocietyThird World QuarterlyDemocratization, The Extractive Industries and SocietyAnnual Review of Environment and Resources, Journal of Contemporary African Studies and Commonwealth & Comparative Politics. I am also the author of Africa’s Development Impasse: Rethinking the Political Economy of Transformation (Zed Books).



At the undergraduate level I convene and teach American Politics and a final-year module entitled Global Political Economy of Energy, as well as convening the Politics and PPE Dissertation modules. At MA level I contribute primarily to International Political Economy.
