Description of my research
Prof. Amann's research centres on regulation, innovation and foreign direct investment in a developing country context. Much of his work focuses on the experiences of Latin America, especially Brazil. He has published in a wide range of development and economics journals including World Development and Oxford Development Studies. He is joint editor of The Oxford Handbook of the Brazilian Economy (OUP, 2018)
I am currently supervising three PhD students working on Brazil-related development and public policy themes
