Professor of International Political Economy
My research interests include the international politics of finance and development, the global governance of Islamic economies (finance, food, and so on) and the disciplinary parameters and spatial location of contemporary IPE. Substantively, my work to date has concentrated on both the theories and common senses that underpin economic and financial policymaking, the question of how this leads to institutional change (in particular the expansion of capital markets and development of Islamic finance) and the socio-economic implications of these changes. My research draws significantly from insights from the Southeast Asia region, especially Indonesia and Malaysia. My research has been supported by the Leverhulme Trust, the British Council Newton Fund and a Princeton Fung Global Fellowship.
