My research interest focuses on the interplay between private and public governance in defining and guiding societal good, the role of state and politics in corporate responsibility (CSR), the role of businesses in development, and CSR in the realm of blended finance and partnerships for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
My postdoc project examines how we can better respond to the grand challenges of poverty reduction and climate change through redirecting business to enhance sustainability and social good in the context of Development Finance Institutions.
