About

Background

My current research is focused on post-work politics and social reproduction, and how the two separate areas can be fit together. This will be published as a book with Helen Hester, entitled After Work: What's Left and Who Cares? (Verso). I have also written on the transformations of the contemporary labour market (Inventing the Future, Verso, 2015) and on the digital economy and its dynamics (Platform Capitalism, Polity, 2016).

Qualifications

PhD, International Relations (LSE, 2013)
MA, Political Science (University of Western Ontario, 2007)
BA, Philosophy and Psychology (University of Western Ontario, 2006)
