Research Interest

My current work examines authoritarian collusion, transnational crime and influence in the Mekong sub-region.  My past work dealt with strategic culture and collective memory and institutions in Southeast Asian defence planning and relations with Great Powers. As a Thai studies scholar, I also research the politics of Thailand and its relations with its neighbours, including the integration of the Mekong sub-region with southern China, through physical connectivity.
