Research interests: Equality and diversity in employment; cultural diversity; international human resource management

Exploring aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion at  work, I pursue a mainly curiosity driven, yet theoretically rigorous, empirically grounded and policy relevant, research agenda. My research seeks to answer important questions and  address significant problems that face workplaces.”
