I am an academic researcher working at the intersection of business and international affairs, focusing on how multinational corporations acquire political power, how they exercise it, and how they can be held accountable. I am Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Global Economy at the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow. I am also an award-winning business journalist, and the co-founder and Executive Director of Public Business, a nonprofit supporting reporting, research and discussion about the wider impact of business actions.
