My research interests are interdisciplinary and varied, but I am fundamentally interested in value, work and culture explored through the lens of performance and symbolic interactionism. This incorporates an interest in a wide variety of cultural rituals and social performances through which value is expressed: including games, organisational culture, change management, recruitment practices, personal learning and development programmes.
My area of advanced specialism lies in the meaning of work and human dignity, on which I am currently producing a monograph to be published in 2021.
I have undertaken original empirical studies of volunteer work, work in international ship management, the work of young ICT professionals, in the representation of rural business and in the organisation of UK live-action role-play events.
