In my scholarship and teaching, I bring historical methods and social theory to bear on the analysis of continuing and unfolding crucial debates. My research incorporates both empirical and analytical work drawn from the social sciences as it applies to problems of technological change, industrialisation, colonialism and globalisation.
I am also associated researcher at the IBC Network, member of the INET's Young Scholars Initiative, and researcher at the project "The livelihood of humanity and the sustainability of the environment" funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
