My research is broadly aligned with Critical Management Studies (CMS): a type of inquiry into management practices that seeks to understand  the social and historical conditions of contemporary organization and that longs for a public sphere in which intellectual work might again be felt as an act and event rather than reified object and end product.

I have a long standing interest in the interfaces of the humanities and organization studies as well as the political and organizational. In my conceptual work I am inspired by the writings of Walter Benjamin, Fredric Jameson, Luc Boltanski and Cornelius Castoriadis.
