I received a BA (Hons) in Sociology and Politics from the University of Liverpool in 1972 and a PhD in Industrial Sociology in 1981. In 1999 I joined the University as a Professor of Organisational Analysis in the Department of HRM. During this time I've been Vice Dean Research twice and Head of Department in between.
My writing and research focuses on changes in work and organization – research linking the political economy, the sociology of work, organizational analysis, HRM and employment relations.
Amongst the professional roles I have undertaken are Business and Management member of the ESRC. Research Grants Board (2000-4); Co-Editor of Work, Employment and Society (2007-2010).
