As associate professor of social policy and development at the London School of Economics and Political Science, I'm engaged in problem-driven, policy-relevant research and teaching on topics including: non-governmental organisations, activism, civil society, development, public health, sexuality, and social policy. While widely recognised as a China expert, my work is broadly comparative and international in scope.
