I am an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources, and I use qualitative field methods to study the changing nature of work, institutions, and technology.
I currently have two streams of research combining organization theory, industrial and employment relations, and technology/innovation management. In the first stream, I study the occupational dynamics surrounding worker voice and situated learning during the introduction and use of new technologies in the workplace. In the second stream, I study the interorganizational relationships among education and labor market institutions for workforce development, with a particular focus on educator-employer partnerships. My research appears in peer-reviewed journals of management and industrial relations, including Organization Science and ILR Review.
Before joining the Centre, I completed my PhD at the MIT Sloan School of Management. I have additional prior experience working in secondary and postsecondary education in the U.S. context.
