I have joined Aston University in June 2006 having previously taught at Royal Holloway, the School of Oriental and African Studies and at the Universities of Reading, East Anglia and Magdeburg.

Research Interests

My research focuses on comparative regionalism with an emphasis on Europe and East Asia regional institution-building. Here, I am particularly interested in the impact of crises as critical junctures on drivers, spoilers and dissolvers of regional institutions.

I have also worked on the EU and China as normative actors in global climate change negotiations, regional responses to refugee crises in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean, the emergence of post-national actorness and interregionalism.
