Research overview

My research interests are centred on the place of discourse in organizations. I am particularly interested in applying Critical Discourse Analysis within the field of organization studies and have used this approach to investigate professionalization, mediation schemes and strategic management processes. I am also interested in the strategic management discourse and the discursive relations between practitioners, academics and consultants.
