I am a Reader in Politics in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. I earned my B.A. and M.A. from York University (Canada) and my Ph.D. in Political Science at McGill University. Before coming to King's I worked at Leiden University (Netherlands) in the Institute of Political Science. My research focuses on (1) European Union politics, (2) financial regulation, (3) lobbying, interest groups, and agenda setting, and (4) the global diffusion of corporate sustainability policy.
