About

IMG_7715 bw.jpg

I am a post-doctoral research fellow at Leeds University Business School. My post-doctoral research concerns the dynamics of human and machine intelligence in navigating interactive service work. My PhD research examined the relations between commodification, cooperation and conflict through the experiences of workers in the London hospitality industry. I am also interested in the history of labour process theory, trade unions in service industries, and the political economy of work.

I am the coordinator of the IIPPE Political Economy of Work Group, which aims to foster collective development of a political economy of work across traditional disciplinary divides.

I am also an affiliate member of the Autonomy Institute, an independent, progressive think tank focused on work and its futures.

I have written for the Independent, Vice, and Novara Media.
