Dr Tomi Koljonen PhD

Lecturer Work, Organisation and Management


Personal Statement

I work as a Lecturer in Organisation Theory at the University of Liverpool in the Work, Organisation and Management group.

My research focuses on organizations, occupations, and work. In particular, I am interested in how technology shapes and is shaped by occupational work, the mechanisms and lived experiences of organizational inequality, the contested and changing nature of expertise, and qualitative research methods. My work has been published in Academy of Management Annals and Academy of Management Journal.

I completed my doctoral studies in Organization and Management at Aalto University and received a Fulbright Pre-Doctoral Research Fellowship for which I visited Boston College in 2020. I was a visiting research fellow at the Weizenbaum Institute in Berlin in 2023.

Prior to my academic career, I worked in public relations and completed BSc and MSc degrees at Aalto University.
