Research overview

I am Lecturer in Higher Education and my research interests broadly concern higher education policy and governance, political economy of higher education and the digital economy.

I am interested in the diversity and complexity of markets in and around universities, including the variety of actors that have entered the sector, their strategies, ways of working, and consequences for higher education and societies at large.  

Most recently I got engaged in studying the relation between the digital economy and higher education and how they might affect each other. In this context I am also focused on the transition of graduates from universities to the labour market and the role of digital platforms in this process.  

I continue to nourish my interest in higher education policy. Particularly I am following the multi-level and multi-actor governance reforms. 

PhD supervision

I am interested in research proposals that investigate the higher education sector in relation to: policy and governance, market-making and industry construction, privatization, quality assurance and evaluation, datafication and digitalisation of governance, platformization, social media, globalisation, global trade agreements, digital economy, and knowledge economy.
