Research Associate, University of Oxford

Daphne Demetry is a Research Associate at the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation. Her postdoctoral research uses interview data to study the intersection of trust, authenticity and reputation.

As an organisational sociologist, Daphne’s research interests focus on the cultural and temporal dimensions of organisations. Using primarily ethnographic methods (interviews and participant observation), her research centres on the culinary industry: restaurant kitchens, pop-up and underground restaurants, and gourmet food trucks. Within these settings, she investigates questions related to organisational theory, economic sociology and entrepreneurship. She has also taught undergraduate and graduate courses on the sociology of entrepreneurship, consumption and consumer culture, and college teaching methods.

Before arriving at Oxford, Daphne completed her PhD in Sociology at Northwestern University.
