Research interests

My research focuses on the social and political implications of economic restructuring in the early twenty-first century. In today’s global economy, production is no longer organized within national boundaries, but structured along global value chains that are fragmented across countries. My research examines how this unbundling of firms and nation-states affects our understanding of the political economy of trade and finance.

A great deal of social science research relies on economic data aggregated at the level of countries (e.g. flows of trade and capital between them). My research examines how such data are constructed, their limitations in capturing transnational economic processes, their uses and abuses in the political arena, and how finer-grained data would improve our understanding of broader political-economic trends.
