My research revolves around the entanglements between subject and power in contemporary organization, which I have studied in a variety of different empirical settings including oil rigs, coffee shops, retail banks, surgery wards, prepper-forums and self-help books. I am particularly interested in dynamics of freedom and co-optation, which I have explored in relation to self-practices such as mindfulness meditation and organizational infrastructures of critique such as whistleblowing hotlines. My more recent research inquires focus on emerging modes of organizational subjectivity related to notions of nature and sustainability as well as the neurobiologically informed forms of organizing and selfhood associated with the introduction of portable EEG-scanners into organizations. Theoretically, I combine an engagement with classic and contemporary organization studies with a wider interest in post-structural theory, pragmatic sociology, new materialism and critical theory.
