PhD supervision

I am available for PhD research projects that take a critical approach to leadership, organizations, and/or business/society/ecology inter-relations. I am also interested in projects that adopt an interventionist as well as critical methodology, and projects that investigate alternative modes of social or organizational relationships. I am experienced in a variety of qualitative and mixed methods (primarily interviews, observations, artefact and critical discourse analysis), and am not qualified to supervise quantitative projects.

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 dynamic and multiply-tendential processes, moments and relations that comprise co-ordination and conflict. iIn particular, I am interested in the cultural, political, economic, and ecological 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 - domination, legitimation, authority, and dispute; economic processes – reproduction, redistribution, and capitals; ecological processes - generation, development, contest, synthesis, and decline).

My current research focuses include: the evolution and design of local socio-ecological governance; leadership within alternatives; and domination.

My research is informed by critical theory, critical realism, and wider social, cultural, and organizational theory.
