My current research analyzes systems for regulating the environmental and social impacts of industrial activities. Through a range of projects, I have been examining trends in industrial development, and state, firm, and community responses to adverse impacts of industrialization. I work with NGOs and community-based organizations in the US and Asia to analyze the impacts of manufacturing on communities and workers, and to advance more effective strategies for regulating environmental and health hazards. I am currently working on projects in the US, Vietnam, China, and Indonesia.
