Professor in the Sociology of Work and Technology in the Business Management Department.
I have been working in Aberdeen Since January 2019. Prior to this I worked in the School of Business and Economics at Loughborough University (2007-2018).
I have research interests in two broad areas. Firstly, I am interested in the relationship between technology and work and how worker's use of new technologies shapes the character of their work. I currently have a primary interest in how artificial intelligence and robots are shaping managerial, professional and service work. I also have an ongoing interest in the work-related use of mobile communication technologies, particularly with respect to business travel. My second area of research interest is into the social-cultural aspects of knowledge management, being concerned with the factors shaping worker's willingness to engage in knowledge management activities
