Biography

I am a lecturer in the division of People, Management and Organisations, in the subject group Organisation and Society.

Having completed a degree in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cambridge (1997-2000) I spent time working as a labourer in various factories in South Cheshire and North Staffordshire, as well as teaching English in St. Petersburg, Russia, and History at a secondary school in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.

Between 2002 and 2003 I did an MA in Russian and East European Studies at the University of Birmingham, and went directly from this to a PhD at the University of Salford.

My PhD, entitled Critical Social Theory and the End of Work was completed in 2007. The PhD traces the intellectual history of theories of the end of work, placing them in social and sociological context, and highlighting the commonalities between them.
