Most of my research revolves around issues related to the public and private regulation of competition. The profound changes in how public authorities regulate competition is for instance analysed, from the vantage point of a critical political economy perspective underpinned by critical realism, in The Politics of European Competition Regulation from 2011 (co-authored by Angela Wigger). As for the private regulation of competition, my research focuses on how companies use corporate networks to control markets.

Through this work I have developed a wider interest in how transformations in political-economic contexts shape – and are shaped by – the evolution of elite networks. In the years to come I will, together with a group of great colleagues, explore this matter as the principle investigator of Longitudinal Elite Networks (LONGLINKS), a research project funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Another main interest is what it would take for our societies in the rich parts of the world to become genuinely environmentally sustainable. I study this issue by cross-fertilising insights from political economy and degrowth scholarship.
