Research interests

My research has looked at the effects of the transformations in global political economy on the nature of work, forms of labour organisation, the subjectivities of labour, the links between labour migration, gender and social reproduction, and the problem of management in the social organisation of work. I am especially interested in these processes in the context of European integration, how they fit within different 'labour regimes', and their place within the relationship between capital and the state. Based in the critical tradition of economic sociology, cultural anthropology and human geography, I pursue a cross-disciplinary research programme based on qualitative methodologies. I welcome PhD students interested in studying any of the above themes, problems and approaches.
