Fields: political economy; political ecology; economic geography; development; food and agrarian studies; urban studies; Asian Studies; China and East Asia. My research combines these approaches to explore the mutual constitutions of society, space, and nature, and I have published on the following topics: industrial network restructuring in urban and rural Shanghai; China’s urbanization and transition to capitalism through the prism of 19th-century Europe and America; peak oil through the relationship between natural resources, technology change, and capitalism; the agrarian roots of flexible production networks in Taiwan; and the political economy of organic agriculture.
