I am currently studying the phenomena of disproportionate policy response, including policy overreaction, policy underreaction, policy bubbles, and emotion-driven negative policy bubbles. I am also looking at processes of emotion regulation and their implications for political science, public policy and international relations. Another area of interest is bureaucratic politics, especially bureaucratic reputation. I am trying to gauge how reputational threats impact upon agency behavior, such as the timing of regulatory decisions, the pace of enforcement, the strategic use of communication, and agency outputs.
