Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I study the political consequences of labour market changes in post-industrial West European countries. In my current work, I look at at how changes to the labour market arising from labour market segmentation, automation and offshoring impact voting behaviour and preferences towards welfare.

 

I also maintain a continued interest in precariousness and declassement in Singapore.
