Biography

I'm interested in how and why people work. In the past I've focused on working hours and the boundary between work and non-work lives. Currently, my focus is more on work identity and how it develops, especially in autonomous (non-organizational) workers. Where relevant, I enjoy examining the role of systemic power structures in determining individual perspectives on work and their behaviour (critical management perspective).
