Overview

My research interests focus on public management and corporate political activity. I am especially interested in cross-sector partnerships, business-government relations, strategic management, corporatization and public service performance.

I have published widely in refereed journals including: European Journal of Political Research, European Management Review, Human Relations, Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Journal of Urban Economics, Public Administration, Public Administration Review, Public Management Review, Social Science & Medicine, Strategic Management Journal, Regional Studies, Urban Affairs Review and Urban Studies.

I am co-editor of Corporatization of Local Government: Context, Experiences and Perspectives from 19 Countries (Palgrave, 2022) and Public Administration Reforms in Europe: The View from the Top (Edward Elgar, 2016). I am also co-author of Strategic Management and Public Service Performance (Palgrave, 2011) and Public Service Efficiency: Reframing the Debate (Routledge, 2013).
