I joined University of Liverpool Management School in October 2016.
My research centres on work, family and healt, which I explore from a socio-cultural perspective. My work is published in social science and organization studies journals including: Human Relations; British Journal of Management; Gender, Work and Organization; Social Science and Medicine; International Journal of Management Reviews and International Journal of Human Resource Management.
I am presently Chair of NARTI (Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative) and in my previous role at Lancaster University I was Institutional Lead for the North West Doctoral Training Programme.
I am interested in supervising PhD students undertaking qualitative research in the areas of work and family. I enjoy teaching research development, and capacity building. among PhD students and early career scholars. In so doing, I often team up with Professor Gary Powell (University of Connecticut).
My journal roles include Co-Editor in Chief (with Dermot Breslin, Sheffield University) of International Journal of Management Reviews and Associate Editor, Gender, Work and Organization.
I am a member of BAM council and of a range of work family research networks including the Oxford Network of European Fatherhood Research.
