I am an institutional political economist, working on a range of issues relating to economic geography, urban restructuring, labor regulation, and statecraft. Much of my research is concerned with the ways in which ostensibly global processes—for example, forms of market-oriented governance (a.k.a. neoliberalization)—are (re)made through local sites, distanciated networks, and grounded practices. I am currently working on the restructuring of contingent employment regimes, the dynamics of “fast policy,” and the fiscal transformation of the local state.
