I am a sociologist of work, cross-appointed in Sociology (Arts) and Strategic Management and Organization (Business). I hold a PhD from the University of Cambridge, where I also held a SSHRC post-doctoral fellowship before joining the University of Alberta.
My research focuses on the experience and organization of work (both paid and unpaid work) in contemporary societies. I have published on a broad range of topics over my career.
Currently my research focuses on three interrelated topics: gender, entrepreneurship, and leadership; gender diversity and inclusivity in organizations; and the relationship between work and care.
My publications appear in leading journals, including: Human Relations; Entrepreneurship, Theory and Practice; Gender, Work and Organizations; and Work, Employment and Society.
I currently serve on the editorial boards of Gender in Management: An International Journal, and International Small Business Journal. I am also a Canada team member for the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM).
