My research interests lie in employer collective action and mobilisation from a comparative employment relations perspective. My research is interdisciplinary drawing on insights on employer collective action from the employment relations, organization studies, political science, and economic geography literatures.
Based on my background in psychology, I am also involved in a collaborative project (with David Marsden) on the introduction of performance-related pay (PRP) in British schools.
