My teaching and research activities are in the intersection of political economy, sinology, and management studies with a geographic focus on China. My research engages themes of business and government in China, and the processes and politics of Chinese economic reform. A major stream of research concerns reforms, ownership, and corporate governance of the Chinese state-owned enterprises. A newer set of projects examine state-owned capital funds, Party organization in the business sector, state-led green transition, and the financialization of economic governance in China.

Additionally, I assist in coordinating and contributing research to the "China Horizons - Dealing with a Resurgent China" (DWARC) project, a three-year research initiative (2022 - 2025) funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe funding program. You can find more information about the project at
