Personal profile

Biography

My research focuses on how people can have meaningful and positive experiences at work - a place where many of us spend a lot of our time.

Currently, I study the effects of artificial intelligence (AI) on the nature of work and workers' experiences. My research aims to help answer questions like what does it mean for us to work with AI? How will jobs change, how will work change, how will our skills change? How do people respond to AI making decisions that impact them, in contexts including human resource management and healthcare? This work also takes an ethical focus to understand how organisations can implement AI ethically and responsibly to best meet the interests of multiple stakeholders.

My research is interdisciplinary, meaning I work with colleagues in fields like computer science/machine learning, philosophy, economics, organisational psychology, and management.

Before becoming an academic, I worked in various human resource/organisational development roles in the public sector and have experience in management consulting. This includes managing initiatives related to graduate development, succession management, recruitment and selection, workforce diversity, mentoring and networking, and facilitating training and development workshops for graduates through to senior managers.

My industry background means I always aim for impact with my research, for both scholarship (to contribute to a body of knowledge) and importantly also for my research partners (to help them understand something better or do something better).

I also have research interests in psychological contracts (examining the employee-employer exchange relationship) and collaborative approaches to responsible innovation.
