My research is interdisciplinary and international by nature. I am interested in the changing nature of work and how this is having an impact on employment relationships, in particular, the rapid the growth in precarious employment relationships and their effect on organisations, individuals and on (self-)organising.
I am also interested in how management ideas travel and are reflected in cultural products such as television dramas, films, literature and art.
