My research addresses a number of topics in international political economy. My core research has focused on the relationship between multinational corporations and domestic governments. I have also published on the politics of natural resources, the political economy of international institutions, the diffusion of policy across borders, business corruption, and civil war.
I’m slowly adding some of my working papers below.
