My PhD research is focused on sociology of finance, regulation and the interplay between transnational history and law. I adopt sociological perspective to understand how regulatory regimes of finance are transformed through the interaction of local, global and transnational scales. I am particularly interested in analysing the production of zones of exclusion and the uneven tendencies inherent in regulatory regimes of financial system. I also work as a teaching assistant at the Graduate Institute.
