I joined Keele Management School in October 1999 from Leeds University Business School. Prior to this I completed my PhD at Manchester University (awarded 1994, School of Managment, UMIST), where I also taught and undertook post doctoral research. My research interests and publications are in the fields of sociology and critical studies in management, work and organisation; empirical research on management and management practices; and gender and diversity in organisations. I was appointed joint Editor in Chief of the journal 'Gender, Work and Organization in Management 2000 and, the following year, instigated at Keele the Biennial International Interdisciplinary Conference of the journal which I continue to organise, now attracting approximately 400 international scholars in the field.
