I am a political scientist with a highly interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological approach, focusing on the social and environmental governance of transnational economic processes, particularly the changing roles of business and civil society actors in transnational governance.

I have conducted research and consultancy work on these topics for a range of NGOs and international organisations including the Forest Stewardship Council, Amnesty International, ActionAid Australia, Oxfam Australia and the UK’s Corporate Responsibility Coalition. I am currently on the advisory board of the Jubilee Australia Research Foundation.

I have been based in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne since January 2009, following previous roles at the London School of Economics, the Australian National University and Oxford University.
