I am an organisational ethnographer, specialising in study of the interactions between the human and nonhuman elements of business.
Recent research projects have included studies of food production and agriculture, disease control, veterinary care and professionalism, among others. I have been at Keele University since 2006 when I was awarded a doctoral scholarship.
Since then I have authored and edited several books (Animals at Work, Ethnography after Humanism and Contemporary Issues in Management) and articles in journals including Organization, Journal of Organizational Ethnography, New Technology Work and Employment. I am a member of the Community Animation and Social Innovation Centre at Keele (CASIC) and have recently become chief editor of its Working Paper Series.
