My teaching and research interests are centered around the political economy of international development, including the politics of international aid allocation (bilateral and multilateral aid), development NGOs, and civil society mobilisation. More specifically, my research focuses on the political economy of mining in the developing world with an emphasis on how transnational norms for the sector are being domesticated. My current work looks at the development of deep sea mining in the Pacific and its impact on Pacific Island Countries.
