Personal profile

Research interests

My research areas include international relations, regionalism, strategic cultures and globalisation. I am the Director of the Centre for East-West Cultural and Economic Studies and Assistant Professor of International Relations within the Faculty of Society and Design.

My research has included:

  • An emphasis on international regimes and cooperation
  • China's engagement in regional and global order
  • New patterns of international and regional governance
  • Chinese, Russian and European interactions across Eurasia
  • ASEAN and the Indo-Pacific region
  • Analysis of identity politics and power networks
  • History in shaping foreign and security policies

I have recently co-authored or written three books: China's Quest for Global Order: From Peaceful Rise to Harmonious World, (Lanham: Lexington Books, 2013), The Politics and Philosophy of Chinese Power: The Timeless and the Timely (Lanham: Lexington Books, 2017) and China's Eurasian Dilemmas: Roads and Risks for a Sustainable Global Power (Cheltenham: Edward Elgar, 2018). Through 2018-2019 I am writing a new contracted book, Greening China's New Silk Roads: The Sustainable Governance of Belt and Road.

 

 

Statement for HDR students

Topics concerning Chinese, Eurasian or Indo-Pacific international relations can be considered, along with research focused on regionalism, regional organizations, or Asian historical interactions.

I have been involved in supervising theses studying 'soft balancing' in relation to regional organizations (ASEAN and SCO), China, Cyber-War and Security, and Non-Traditional Security.
