I am Professor of Global Political Economy at the University of Derby, UK. Prior to joining Derby in December 2016, I was at Leeds Beckett University for 12 years. There, I started at the Policy Research Institute where I became Director, before moving to be Head of Politics and Applied Global Ethics. Following that, I was the founding Director of the Centre for Applied Social Research (CeASR). Prior to joining Leeds Beckett I worked with Dexter Whitfield at the Centre for Public Services and before that at the Association of University Teachers (now UCU).
My academic research focuses on the role of crisis in the reshaping of the global political economy. I am particularly interested in transitions within capitalist hegemony and in the potential for progressive transitions to a more just form of global political economy. I have also undertaken a large number of applied research and consultancy projects on behalf of central and local government organisations in the UK and for international organisations such as the Council of Europe, European Commission and Inter-American Development Bank.
