Currently, my research addresses four related areas; international finance, international taxation, activism for economic justice and multinational corporate organisation. I am co-author of European Commission Research Director General, Horizon 2020 Framework Program project, - ‘COFFERS - Combating Fiscal Fraud and Empowering Regulators 2016-2019. Here, I lead the Work Package 4 ‘Corporate Form’ and Work Package 7 ‘Impact’. I am also a researcher on the ERC Advanced Grant, ‘CORPLINK - Corporate Arbitrage and CPL Maps: Hidden Structures of Control in the Global Economy’. Current projects include a co-edited volume ‘Global Wealth Chains: Asset Strategies in the World Economy’ with Oxford University Press 2019 and a co-authored monograph, ‘Global tax Battles: The Fight to Govern Corporate and Elite Wealth’ with Oxford University Press 2019. I direct the Masters Programme, Public Management and Social Development at the Sino-Danish Centre in Beijing.
