I am Adjunct Assistant Professor in International Relations at Richmond University London, teaching a range of courses from Introduction to International Relations to International Political Economy at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I am also an instructor on the flagship LSE100 The LSE Course at the London School of Economics and Political Science, which applies social scientific analysis to current issues and global events. I am committed to engaging students in learning and promoting innovative and applied teaching techniques.
My primary research interests are in regulation and public policy. I am particularly interested in private transnational regulation and global policy-making processes with a focus on industry sectors relying on high technology and innovation.
My latest research investigated the role of industry players in shaping the transnational governance of radio frequencies for the delivery of electronic communications systems. My current research concerns the influence of issue networks in the creation of a digital single market in the EU and the role of strategic partnerships for patent sharing in order to achieve cross-sector technology transfers that meet the sustainable development agenda of the EU.
I hold a PhD in Government from LSE (access it here), having previously completed an MSc in Politics and Government in the EU (LSE) and a BA (double major) in International Relations and Communications (Richmond University). I have been a member of the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation at LSE, having received the CARR-Deutsche Bank scholarship of the centre during my doctoral research. I was a teaching fellow in Regulation and Public Policy on the UCL-Vodafone Public Policy Intensive Programme, having worked on the design and delivery of the programme. Outside academia, I worked as an economic consultant (Volterra Partners) on a number of key urban development and infrastructure projects in London and the South East of England.
