Personal profile

Biography

Before being appointed a Reader in Management at the University of Roehampton I spent seven years in the Lincoln Business School, University of Lincoln (Lecturer/Senior Lecturer) and four years at the University of Essex (Academic Teacher/PhD candidate).

I currently lead the People and Organizations research cluster in Roehampton Business School.

Qualifications

I hold two standalone MA degrees (Management and Philosophy, from the University of Warsaw, Poland) as well as a PhD in Management Studies (from the University of Essex, UK).

Research interests

My recent ethnography-informed research investigates technological, conceptual and spatial reformulations of modern workplaces, and the redefinition of concept of work as such through 'mobile' and 'flexible' working. Within this context I also investigate how discourses become vehicles for transmitting legitimacy and power as well as ensure control through semantics and space. 

Research projects

Configurations of boundaries between work and non-work in the flexible working context - supported by the British Academy Grant

Consultancy work

I have two years of industry experience as a Consultant and Project Manager (business support for the SMEs).
