Curriculum Vitae

I am a broadly trained political economist interested in a number of different areas. Currently, I am working in two main areas. The first is on the topic of extractivism and involves a study of how 'social licence' is being contested in northern British Columbia, Greenland, Sweden, and Mexico as well as my involvement in a multi-researcher, multi-institution collaboration analysing the power of, and resistance, to the fossil fuel industry in Western Canada. This is a relatively new field of research for me and my second current area of research has a longer history drawing upon over 30 years of research on China and Asia. I am analysing various aspects of regionalism in Asia and the impacts of globalisation on the Developmental State.  My most recent publication is the co-edited volume, The Essential Guide to Critical Development Studies, Routledge: 2018.
