My current research is focussed around:

1. Banking and Finance. 

Over the last ten years I have worked with Professor Stephen Bell at the University of Queensland to complete a comparative study of the causes of the 2007/8 banking crisis and, more recently, the dynamics of post-crisis regulatory reform.

2. Left Behind?

I have recently started a project with colleagues at the Universities of Southampton and Manchester describing and measuring the growth and decline of towns which are often described as having been ‘left behind’.

PhD Supervision

I am currently first supervisor for two PhD projects – the first on bank reform since the financial crisis (Adam Barber) and the second on the governance and politics of the nuclear renaissance. I have previously supervised eight PhDs to completion.
I would be willing to consider supervising topics on banking and political economy, British politics, governance, public policy and rational choice theory.
