Research interests

My current research can be grouped into three main areas. 

First, a lot of my work examines the (re)emergence of energy as a security issue. I approach energy security as an essentially meaningless term, that nonetheless becomes a repository of a whole manner of different political ideals and policy proposals, and shapes collective action around within the energy sector and wider society. My research in this area has primarily been on the long-running attempts to ‘securitise’ gas supplies in the European Union based on a liberal market and risk management based approach to ensuring the availability of adequate supplies.

Second, I’ve extended this interest to the impact of Brexit on crisis management. I am currently working on a Carnegie Trust funded project with Dr John Connolly examining whether and how the institutional and operational arrangements for preventing and managing crises will need to be adapted when the UK leaves the EU.  My contribution to the project is to examine the arrangements for managing gas supply disruptions as well as the future UK-EU relationship in this area.

Third, I have an overarching interest in the dynamics of EU policymaking. Most of my research in this area has focused on examining the links between interest group preferences and the different stages of the policy process - formation, decision, transposition and compliance.

Supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD students in any of my areas of research interests.  I would particularly welcome applications focusing on the following topics:

Energy Security

Projects that look to examine the role of discourses, perceptions and identity in the construction of energy issues as security concerns.  I am also interested in projects that seek to examine different meanings of energy security in concrete political contexts and how these interact with other values/policy objectives such as sustainability, economic development and democracy.

Securitisation Theory

Projects that seek to apply securitisation theory (any variety) to new cases, contexts and issues, and develop the theory in novel ways.  My empirical expertise in this area focus on energy securitisation, and I am keen to take on students who want to examine the (re)emergence of energy as a security concern in various settings.

Post-Brexit Security Policy and/or Crisis Management

Projects that look to examine the development of new forms of UK-EU cooperation in the broad areas of security and crisis management policy are especially welcome.

Energy Policy at the EU and/or Member State levels

I am open to supervising students focusing on any substantive area of energy policy, particularly in the EU or its member states.  I have particular expertise on the internal energy market, EU-Russian energy relations and gas markets, but am also interested in other areas such as electricity markets, renewables and infrastructure development.
