I am currently working on a book manuscript that considers the conditions under which domestic firms will support policies of openness toward foreign direct investment. In the manuscript, I develop a theoretical argument that emphasizes the importance of the local and global financing environment as structuring firms’ positions toward liberalization. I use a mixture of large N quantitative analysis and comparative case studies to evaluate support for this theory.

I am also developing a research project that considers how the networked structure of globalized fragmented production and financing networks affects the political power of multinational firms vis-a-vis states, governance institutions, and societal actors. I will be presenting initial findings from the project at the International Studies Association’s annual conference this spring. I am also co-hosting a conference on this topic at Princeton University’s Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance in the fall of 2016.

In addition to these two large research projects I have on-going projects, some of which with co-authors, related to international investment treaties and arbitration, public opinion over foreign direct investment, and how network structures influence patterns of economic booms and crises globally.
