  • Dr. Greetje “Gretta” Corporaal
  • Sociologist of Work and Organizations

I’m a postdoctoral researcher and tutor at the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), University of Oxford. I’m also a Teaching Affiliate at Saïd Business School, an associate member of the Digital Organisation and Society Research Centre at Royal Holloway University of London, a Fellow of the World Economic Forum‘s Global Future Council on the New Social Contract, 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 understanding the social, organizational, and economic implications of using digital technologies in the workplace. This has been the focus of my doctoral research project, an ethnographic study of cross-boundary collaboration, of my postdoctoral research in the iLabour Project, an ethnographic study of the emergence and creation of online labour markets, and which will be continued in the upcoming iWork Project, an ethnographic study of how ‘work’ is changing when firms use digital platforms to bring remote independent contractors into the workplace. 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. During my time in Groningen I also studied Classical Violin at the Prins Claus Conservatoire.
