Room: KIL/14.A-4.55

I am Associate Professor in International Political Economy and study financial governance and transnational governance. In relation to this research, I am completing work on a small project on expert networks in economic governance funded by the Institute for New Economic Thinking. I am also working on an ongoing basis on issues related to compliance and anti-money laundering practices within financial institutions. Furthermore, I am developing work on how professional networks address complex global issues, with a focus on demographic change in OECD countries. In the period 2015- 2018, I was actively involved in a Horizon 2020 project on 'European Legitimacy in Governing through Hard Times: The Role of European Networks', addressing issues related to demographic trends and policies in the European Union. For the period 2018-2021, I am involved in a project funded by the Norwegian Research Council on the role of consultants and experts in the definition and implementation of banking regulation standards. Additionally, I am co-principal investigator of a grant funded by the Velux foundation on ‘Expert Niches: How Local Networks Leverage Markets’ (2019-2022).

I am the CBS representative in the Horizon 2020 double degree doctoral programme GEM-STONES. I sit on the study board of the Sociology and Business Administration BSc programme and I act as a mentor in the Assistant Professor Programme.

I serve on the Editorial Board of the RIPE/Routledge series in Global Political Economy and the International Advisory Board of the Review of International Political Economy. I am a convenor of the network on ‘Regulation and Governance’ of the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics. I am also a Senior Associate Fellow in the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation of the University of Warwick.
