Research Interests

  • International political economy
  • ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) 
  • Green transition
  • Impact investing 
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Geographic focus: China, Africa and Latin America

My research explores issues of green transition and sustainability with a specific focus on the interconnection between multinational corporations and government/development institutions at national and international levels, and the possibilities on renewable energy. I hope to be able to bring greater attention to and knowledge of Chinese influence and perspectives on global governance and international cooperation, as well as understanding of the ESG aspects of Chinese overseas business and investment, particularly in Latin America and Africa.
