My work focuses on conducting economic impact assessment of Brexit and legal analysis of bilateral free trade agreements, EU’s trade agreements with emerging economies and public procurement reform.
Ongoing and recently completed projects include economic assessment of Brexit for the Welsh Assembly and industry sectors, as well as providing advice on procurement reform in the Caribbean.
I have successfully completed projects for the European Commission (EuropeAid and FP7), UK-ESRC, British Academy, ITCILO, Commonwealth Secretariat, InterAmerican Development Bank and several other institutions.
I have provided evidence on trade related matters to the Scottish and European Parliament. I have published books and journal articles on bilateral trade issues, EU trade policy and procurement liberalisation.
