My research interests are in the area of globalisation, international trade and industrial development. I am especially interested in issues relating to global regulations, global standards and local outcomes for firms, workers and communities. Within this agenda my current research focuses on the emerging economies, or Rising Powers, of China, India and Brazil and the impacts that they are having on the rest of the developing world. I also have a long-standing interest on the political economy of Pakistan
