Gabriel joined the Politics DA as Lecturer in Politics in 2012 from Oxford Brookes University, where he was previously a Lecturer in International Political Economy. His research and teaching interests sit at the interface of European and International Political Economy, where he focuses on issues relating to trade and development politics (including the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), the EU's role as a global actor, constructivism and responses to the Financial and Eurozone Crises.

His work has been recently published in a number of leading journals including New Political Economy, the Review of International Political Economy, the Journal of Common Market Studies and Contemporary Politics. His monograph Constructing European Union Trade Policy: A Global Idea of Europe has also just been published in the Palgrave Macmillan IPE series, and explores the broad political economic implications of the EU's policy of pursuing Free Trade Agreements with emerging economies. Gabriel was awarded the New Political Economy Graduate Student Paper Prize in 2011 and the Andrew Gamble PhD Thesis Prize from the Department of Politics at the University of Sheffield in 2012.

He sits on the Steering Committee of the Manchester Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.
