Work, workplaces and labour market policy. Builds upon labour economics, industrial relations and human resource management. Recent research has examined contingent labour, workplace EEO programs, work in call centres and agebcy employment.
Research interests are employment arrangements; work and gender; industry clusters; call centre work. Most of my work is collaborative and seeks to set out changes in the nature of work, workplaces and working arrangements. This has been done with a link to public policy discussion and analysis.
