My research focuses on the activities of multilateral financial institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund and regional financial arrangements. I am especially interested in the determinants, relational dynamics, and consequences of their lending programs, economic surveillance, and technical assistance.
My research has been funded by Cambridge Political Economy Society Trust, Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, Economic and Social Research Council, and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga. My publications have appeared in leading academic journals, such as American Journal of Sociology, Review of International Political Economy, Review of International Organizations, Social Science & Medicine, and World Development.
I am also the curator of IMF Monitor, a data hub used by academics, civil society, and policymakers to track activities of the International Monetary Fund. In addition, I have worked as a consultant to various international, public, and non-governmental organizations, including the German Ministry of International Cooperation and Development, Oxfam International, and Recourse Foundation.
