Research Interests

My research interests revolve around critical perspectives on co-ordination and conflict, with a particular focus on alternative modes of leadership, organizing and learning. At the core of this intellectual endeavour is an interest in the dialectical processes, moments and relations that comprise co-ordination and conflict, in particular the cultural, political and economic processes and relations that create, enable and constrain co-ordination and conflict (for example, in relation to cultural processes – ideation, imaginaries, discourses, norms and modes of valuing; political processes - legitimation, authority and dispute; economic processes – reproduction, redistribution and capitals).

My research is informed by critical theory and critical realism.
