Senior Lecturer in International Relations, University of Bath
Prior to joining Bath in 2014, I was a Marie Curie International Fellow at the NCRE, University of Canterbury (New Zealand) and the University of Nottingham. During this time I conducted research on the various free trade agreement strategies of global economic powers in the region, and the effects of strategic competition on their strategies.
Previously, I lectured at Birkbeck College, London and the University of Nottingham. I have been also been a visiting fellow at ANUCES, Australian National University, Monash University in Melbourne, the University of Salzburg and ULB in Brussels.
My current projects include a book on the divergent free trade agreement strategies of large (China, USA, EU) and small economies (Singapore, Chile, New Zealand) in Asia-Pacific and their effects on the development of future economic governance in the region.
Alongside Annick Masselot of the University of Canterbury, I am investigating Asian resistance to European norm promotion through free trade agreements.
