Curriculum Vitae

I am a broadly trained political economist interested in a number of different areas. Currently, I am working on two projects. The first is on the topic of extractivism and involves a study of how 'social licence' is being contested in northern British Columbia, Greenland and Mexico as well as my involvement in the SSHRC-funded Corporate Mapping Project, 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 project has a longer history drawing upon over 30 years of research on China. The project analyses various aspects of how China has been affected the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 and how it has responded to it. My most recent publication is the co-edited volume, The Essential Guide to Critical Development Studies, Routledge: 2017
