My research centres on how commodity networks, land and infrastructure investments in mainland Southeast Asia shape state-society relations and local processes of agrarian change. My recent Future Fellowship examined the transformative role of Cambodian and Vietnamese trading networks that mobilise timber and cash crops for Chinese markets (FT130101495 2014-2018). A new collaboration on hydro-electric dams in the Mekong region (DP180101495) is studying how these investments, now tied to the One Belt One Road Initiative, are catalyzing complex environmental, social and political responses in Cambodia and Vietnam.
