- Senior Lecturer (Management)
My research interests include organizational trust and trust repair, management in the creative industries, workplace learning, and change management. I employ a range of qualitative methodologies including discourse analysis, narrative analysis and organizational ethnography. Currently I am working on an ethnographic study of socialisation into elite professions in which I draw on the theory of Georg Simmel, particularly professional differentiation and secrecy in organizations. My other current research project explores organizational trust repair from a process/context perspective and involves an analysis of rebuilding trust after repeated competency and integrity transgressions.
I am a Co-Editor of the European Management Journal http://www.journals.elsevier.com/european-management-journal/
I am a Visiting Fellow in Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.
I currently work as a Senior Lecturer in Management in Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow. With my background in linguistics, literature and cultural studies I started my career as a tutor in British culture in the University of Łódź, and a tutor in Slavonic culture at the University of Glasgow. My interest in social-cultural theory and research into representations of working-class culture brought me closer to the area organizational sociology, which consequently led to a move to Caledonian Business School where I worked in the Departments of People Management, and Cultural Business. In 2010 I moved to my current post at the University of Glasgow where I teach in the area of change management, organizational behaviour and human resource management, and act as a Convenor of the MSc in Management Professional Pathway programme.
