My research interests concern an intersection of institutional labour economics and employment relations, with an explicit focus on dynamic segmented labour markets and their effects on macroeconomic, employee and organisational outcomes. I am also interested in behavioural aspects of union-management relationships involving, notably, the rationale for and ramifications of the mutual gains of workplace cooperation for the parties involved: employers, employees and employee representatives.
My PhD thesis was an empirical enquiry into challenges and opportunities posed to trade unions by the rise of contingent employment in segmented labour markets, like the one in the United Kingdom. I have been involved in numerous research project that investigated the demand side of active labour market policies, the union learning agenda and training provision in the UK, wage determination and trajectories of collective bargaining after the Great Recession, and benefits of ‘high-road’ human resource management systems.
I have a strong interest in application of quantitative methods in labour market studies, industrial relations and human resource management. This involves both primary survey design and secondary data analysis coupled with advanced econometrics, psychometric modelling and Bayesian inference. I welcome PhD applications from a variety of disciplines that cover my research interests and methodological expertise.
I specialise in teaching research methodology alongside human resource management and labour market disciplines. I have an extensive experience of teaching quantitative research methods and mixed-methods research design at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have designed and lead courses on advanced quantitative analysis (multilevel modelling and latent variable analysis) and statistical software packages, especially the R software environment for statistical computing and graphics. I currently teach the following courses.
