I am Professor of International Relations in the School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Melbourne.
I specialise in the political economy of international money and finance, including their governance among and within countries. Here is a video launching my most recent book, The Wealth Effect (Cambridge, 2019), co-authored with Jeffrey Chwieroth at the LSE: http://www.systemicrisk.ac.uk/events/wealth-effect-how-great-expectations-middle-class-have-changed-politics-banking-crises.
Here is a brief explainer of this research (https://voxeu.org/article/satisfying-great-expectations-middle-class)

Prior to joining UoM in 2012, I was Reader in International Political Economy at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I was also Academic Director of the TRIUM Global Executive MBA Programme, an alliance between the LSE, NYU Stern School of Business, and the HEC School of Management (Paris), and Research Associate in the Department of Management at the LSE. Externally, I was a member of the Council of Chatham House, a leading British think-tank of international affairs. I also sat on the editorial board of the Review of International Studies, the house journal of the British International Studies Association, from 2011-2015. Over 1990-1997 I was a Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford, and University Lecturer in International Relations at Oxford University. I have been a visiting professor at the University of Melbourne, The Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies (Singapore), University of British Columbia, International University of Japan, and the Pacific Council on International Policy (University of Southern California, Los Angeles).
I have a BA(Hons) degree in Economics and Political Science from the University of Western Australia and a MPhil and DPhil in International Relations (on international monetary organization) from Oxford University in 1987. I worked in London and New York as an associate in JP Morgan's investment banking division over 1987-90 before I left for academia. I have published articles on the political economy of international finance and investment, on globalization, and on international standards and compliance. My first book was on international monetary relations since 1870 (World Power and World Money: The Role of Hegemony and International Monetary Order ). My recent books are Governing Finance: East Asia's Adoption of International Standards (Cornell, 2008), Analyzing the Global Political Economy (Princeton, 2009), China, the United States, and Global Order (Cambridge, 2011, with Rosemary Foot), East Asian Capitalism (Oxford, 2012, with Xiaoke Zhang), Global Financial Governance Confronts the Rising Powers (CIGI, 2016, with C. Randall Henning), and The Wealth Effect: How the Great Expectations of the Middle Class Have Changed the Politics of Banking Crises (2019, Cambridge University Press, with Prof Jeffrey Chwieroth, LSE). My current research concerns the role of emerging countries in global economic governance, the global setting and diffusion of financial regulatory standards, and the political and policy aftermaths of financial crises.
