Current research and teaching
My dissertation project engages with recent changes in the organisation of work in the Swedish construction industry. With a focus on the building sector, it aims to investigate how organisational change manifests through dis-integrated organisational structures dependent on subcontracting. I situate the analysis in the broader field of the Swedish building sector, and explore social boundaries that are revealed through the restructuring of work, and its effect on companies, subcontractors, and workers involved on construction sites in Sweden.
I both teach and supervise at the undergraduate level.
