Research Interests: Identity work, work and non-work boundaries, autonomous workers, critical management perspectives, working time


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).
