He has also held visiting fellowships at Cranfield University, Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), and the American University in Cairo, Cornell University, and Rhodes University. He currently is Overseas Research Associate of the University of the Witwatersrand.

He has had numerous research grants including from funding councils, the European Union, government departments (e.g. US Department of Labor), charities (e.g. Nuffield Foundation) and the labour movement (e.g. the ITF). He was the winner of the ECGI 2012 prize (with Marc Goergen and Noel O’Sullivan) for the best working paper in finance. Geoff’s research interests centre on the relationship between national institutional setting, corporate governance, firm finance, and firm-level work and employment relations. While much of the contemporary comparative institutional literature draws distinctions between national contexts based on stylized ideal types, macroeconomic trends, and/or limited panels of case studies, his work brings to bear systematic comparative firm level evidence.
