My research interests focuses on equality, diversity and inclusion at work from international and comparative perspectives, drawing mainly on sociology theory. In particular, I am interested in engaged scholarship that can support the development of theory and practices that promote equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights across public, private and voluntary sector organisations in Britain and internationally. I have published in journals such as Academy of Management Review, Human Resource Management, Journal of Vocational Behaviour and Human Relations, and have published or edited 15 books and numerous special issues.
I supervised over 20 students to completion as first or second supervisor. I am interested in supervising doctoral thesis that critically engage with relations of power at work and focus on issues of equality, diversity or inclusion.
