My research focuses on urban and economic geography.  Firstly, I am interested in the everyday politics and power relations characterising the governance of cities, including the practices of negotiation and argumentation between actors.  In the last five years my research in this area has focused on examining how urban local authorities are mediating austerity, with particular focus on economic development and regeneration. This research has been undertaken with a number of city councils in the UK. research has been published in a number of journals, including EPA, Urban Studies, Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society,  and Geoforum.

Secondly, I undertake research on the  role of geography in the configuration of corporations, and their impact on geographical relations, particularly in relation to the Global Production Networks perspective.  I am particularly interested in how geography underpins power relations within the corporation, and the consequence of such power configurations on economic geographies. Research from this area has been published in journals such as the Journal of Economic Geography. 

I am presently a Leverhulme Fellow 2018-19, studying the impact of Brexit on foreign corporations in the UK.  The study examines also examines how corporations are mediating the impacts of Brexit, including examination of how supply chains are being reconfigured, and the impact of Brexit on regional development.
