Research overview

I am currently a co-investigator on a 30-month ESRC funded project researching “The Role of Army Reservists: An Analysis of their Experiences and the Attitudes and Perceptions of Civilian Employers, Regulars and Significant Others” and a 6 month British Academy funded project researching “Woodland working: Intergenerational skills gained and shared in the volunteer workforce”.

My research expertise centres upon the implicit and explicit contracts employees have with their organization as well as the social and work relationships between employees.
