I am a social scientist researching the low carbon energy transition. I currently work at the Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University, where I sit on the steering committee of the Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific initiative. Trained as a political scientist (Ph.D. 2009), I am particularly interested in analysing how governments balance the goal of creating competitive advantage through green industry policies with the need to respond effectively to climate change, using a global supply chain perspective. I have also spent some time working on the fossil fuel sector, notably crude oil.

I currently serve on the Editorial Board for Organizational Response to Climate Change: Business, Governments, and Nonprofits series, Cambridge University Press (2021-), and Studies in Comparative Energy and Environmental Politics series, Oxford University Press (2017- ). I am also Associate Editor for the Japanese Journal of Political Science (2018-).

Most of the research I have been involved in is available for download from my website at, or from ResearchGate. You can find also me on LinkedIn and Twitter, or feel free to drop me an email.
