Chad's research falls within the fields of International Relations and International Political Economy, with particular emphases on transatlantic relations, international regulatory cooperation, and the European Union in international politics. He is particularly interested in exploring both the international and domestic sources of International Relations and the causal interaction of material, institutional and ideational factors. Such issues appear prominently in his new conceptualisation and research agenda on Market Power Europe. In addition, his book investigates the role of domestic politics in International Relations, specifically the interaction between the EU and the United States in the regulation of transatlantic corporate mergers. In other publications, he explores similar issues and questions with the tools of comparative politics and public policy. His research covers a number of policy areas, including regulation, competition, industrial, trade and environmental policy.
At the Honours level, Chad teaches courses on transatlantic relations and the EU as a global actor; he also contributes lectures on Introduction to Politics and International Relations. At the postgraduate level, he teaches on the institutions and policies of the EU, the EU in international affairs, and globalisation and European integration.
Chad has membership in the following Politics Research Groups: International Politics, European Integration and Public Policy
Chad is able to offer research supervision on most topics related to European Union external relations, in particular studies of EU regulatory, trade and environmental relations with other state and non-state actors (including international organisations and regions).
