I am a social scientist researching the low carbon energy transition. I am currently a Professor at the Crawford School of Public PolicyAustralian National University, where I sit on the steering committee of the Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific initiative. From 2018 to 2021 I served as Associate Dean for Research in the ANU's College of Asia and the Pacific.

I am particularly interested in analysing how governments balance the goal of creating competitive advantage with the need to respond effectively to climate change, using a global supply chain perspective. I have also spent some time working on the fossil fuel sector, notably crude oil.

I currently serve on the Editorial Board for Organizational Response to Climate Change: Business, Governments, and Nonprofits series, Cambridge University Press (2021-), and Studies in Comparative Energy and Environmental Politics series, Oxford University Press (2017- ). I am also Associate Editor for the Japanese Journal of Political Science (2018-).

Most of the research I have been involved in is available for download from my website at llewelynhughes.net, or from ResearchGate. You can find also me on LinkedIn, or feel free to drop me an email.
