Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in employee relations with particular interest in the various dynamics and organisational processes that are integral to creating positive working environments. Specifically, I have interests in conflict management, partnering and collaboration, and more recently, in diversity and inclusion. My current work often involves examining these issues within context of the non-profit sector and social care, and considers the disciplines of HRM, organisational behaviour and the sociology of work.

I am currently working on a number of projects examining: 

1) The institutional changes taking place in response to the changing nature of workplace conflict in Anglo American countries, with specific interest in how public dispute resolution agencies are transforming. 

2) How organisational conflict management approaches can be optimised for enhancing workplace inclusion.

3) The nature of employee relations in the non-profit social care sector with a particular interest in examining how the experiences, knowledge and skills of social care workers are utlised and valued when delivering public services under contract. 

4) The experiences of health and social care workers in response to COVID 19, specifically examining mental well-being and strategies for coping through the pandemic. 



I have delivered a range of modules in the broad areas of Human Resource Management, Employee Relations and Organizational Behaviour and have a particular interest in teaching Negotiation and Conflict Management and enjoy teaching in the area of Diversity and Inclusion.
