Welcome!  I am an Associate Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). My areas of expertise are in global political economy, global environmental politics, and the role of business in international relations.

At LSE, I serve as the Academic Director of the TRIUM Global Executive MBA, an alliance between LSE, NYU Stern School of Business and HEC Paris, and one of the world's leading global EMBAs (ranked #1 by Financial Times EMBA survey in 2014). I am also an associate of the LSE's Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and an associate fellow of Chatham House. A short biography is available here.
