I’m a postdoctoral researcher and tutor at the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), University of Oxford. I’m also a Fellow of the World Economic Forum‘s Global Future Council on the New Social Contract, a Teaching Affiliate at Said Business School, and a co-host of the Talking About Organizations Podcast. A Sociologist of Work and Organizations, my research interests lie at the intersection of Management and Organization Studies, Information Systems Research, and Economic Sociology. In particular I’m interested in how digital technologies shape the future of work and organizing in society. Research projects include the iLabour Project in which I study the creation and adoption of online labor market platforms. I’m also interested in cross-boundary collaboration and how knowledge work around technology, innovation, and strategy is changing as organizational boundaries become increasingly permeable and work temporal-spatially distributed.  At the OII I teach the MSc Options Course Digital Technology and Economic Organization. I hold a PhD in Organization Sciences, a MSc (cum laude) in Social Research (major Organization Sciences), and a PMC (cum laude) in Culture, Organization, and Management from VU Amsterdam. I further hold a BSc in Psychology from the University of Groningen, where I also studied Modern Japan Studies and Classical Violin.
