I am a Lecturer in Economic Geography at Queen Mary University of London, School of Geography. My research interests are in labour governance of global production networks in developing countries. My current research focuses on how changing relationships and power dynamics between firms in the electronics industry, governments, non-governmental organizations and trade unions affect negotiations, strategies and activities around labour governance in Malaysia, China, and Vietnam.
After my PhD at the University of Manchester Global Development Institute in 2012, I completed a three-year project on Understanding Power Relations to Improve Labour Governance in the Global Production Network of the Computer Industry as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2016. I am currently working on a book on Improving labour conditions in the global electronics industry: an exploration of governance in a global production network to be published by Oxford University Press.
