Research interests

My research examines multinational firms as sites of contestation and lenses through which to study broader trends in international political economy (IPE). My work takes theoretical inspiration from the critical tradition of political economic analysis, but is primarily empirically driven. I have an interest in how economic processes are being (mis)measured and I seek to leverage fine-grained firm-level data to better understand the micro-foundations of macro-level trends. So far, I have pursued this line of research in three complementary directions: the analysis of how longer-term transformations in the structural organization of multinational firms have reshaped imaginaries of state-business relations and resulting regulatory regimes; the transnational politics of executive remuneration as a systemic driver of the upwards redistribution of economic rents widening societal inequalities; and the failure of official statistics collected at the level of nation-states to capture increasingly trans-national economic processes.
