Alvin Camba is a Former Global China Research Fellow with the Boston University Global Development Policy Center a PhD candidate in Sociology at Johns Hopkins University and a non-resident fellow at the Stratbase-ADR Institute. He bridges the study of international political economy, political sociology, and development. Using mixed-methods approaches, he investigates how the structure of elite formation and state-society relations impact capital mobility in the developing world. Focusing on Southeast Asia more broadly, his research can be categorized in three distinct but interrelated themes: (1) Chinese economic capital; (2) extractive industries and development; and (3) the political economy of colonialism.
