J. Robert Branston

Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Business Economics, University of Bath

I am a Senior Lecturer in Business Economics at the University of Bath School of Management and also part of the University of Bath Tobacco Control Research Group. My primary research interests surround the governance and regulation of organisations, with a particular focus on the provision of public utilities and other key sectors, most notably the global tobacco industry. I have researched the conduct, performance, and market impact of transnational companies, and appropriate regulatory measures that might be applied to such companies in order to secure the public interest. More recently I have developed an interest in the conduct and performance of micro-firms, especially in the area of regulation.
