He is currently working on the social impacts of large-scale investments in sub-Saharan Africa, including the effects of foreign investment in agriculture in Africa on the lives of local farmers; legal-philosophical aspects of investment law, and; on the promotion of Human Rights in international investment arbitration cases.
