Personal profile

Research interests

My research examines the workplace as a contested site of power relations that include conformity, consent and resistance. I am particularly interested how new managerial practices, such as algorithmic management and supply chain management, influence power relations within the workplace shaping workers' agency and quality of work life. My research aims at understanding connections between the macro level dynamics and the meso and micro level (workplace) experiences.

My current and recent projects include:

  • Digital Fair Employment Scotland – Evaluating Fair Work in the digital platform economy in Scotland (RSE Small Research Grants scheme - £5k).
  • Informal business and employment practices in platform work in the UK. 

Roles & Responsibilities

I am a researcher in the Centre for Research Into Employment, Work and the Professions (Launch August 2020).
