I am a political sociologist with interests in the commercial determinants of health, and the relationship between public policy, corporations, and public well-being.

Research Interests

My research explores the interdependencies between global health policy, evidence-based policy-making, corporate political influence and public well-being. My current work covers: the relationship between corporations, science, and policy-related evidence; business influence in shaping the underlying administrative architecture of policy-making; the intersections of corporate political influence, international trade and investment agreements and public policy; and the relationship between state support to business and public well-being.

Teaching Activity

I currently teach Health Policy and Corporate Power.

PhD Supervision

I am open to supervising PhD students with an interest in the commercial determinants of health, health and public policy, corporate influence in public policy, business regulation, business involvement in health services, and corporate social responsibility.
