Personal profile


I'm a Hallsworth Research Fellow at the Global Development Institute in the University of Manchester. 

I completed my PhD at the University of Limerick in Ireland and lectured in International Political Economy at Geography in Trinity College Dublin. After this, I came to Manchester to take up a teaching-focused lectureship in global governance and International Political Economy.

I’m currently on the international editorial board of Globalizations.

Research interests

My research centres on the political economy of global governance and resistance.

In Global Civil Society and Transversal Hegemony, I explore global social relations of governance and resistance through the World Social Forum and World People’s Conference on Climate Change in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

My current Hallsworth research on ‘the making of the global working class’ explores present-day and historical meanings and forms of global resistance.
