Dr Emily Rose

Senior Lecturer


Personal statement

I am a socio-legal scholar researching work and labour markets. A key theme of my research is to understand how law interacts with and shapes people’s experience of work. I have a particular interest in emerging forms of work, including innovation labour in the context of technology startups and industry 4.0 (digital manufacturing), and immaterial labour more broadly. I currently hold a Leverhulme Fellowship and have previously received funds from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Carnegie Trust. I am qualified as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.
