I am passionate about ethnography and, more generally, qualitative/interpretive approaches for researching and theorizing about work practices and organizational processes. I am particularly keen to reflect - together with fellow ethnographers - on the 'making of ethnography' especially regarding the relational work it entails. I am also interested on the ways ethnographers present their 'empirical evidence.'

Ethnography Circle (2016-2018) I have organized two editions of the ethnography circle at Warwick University. This is a cycle of meetings in which ethnographers (and qualitative researchers more generally) from a variety of disciplines come together to explore the challenges associated with this research approach in a community of practice ethos.
Summer School on Practice-Based Studies (2018) I am the co-director of the 2018 edition of the WBS Summer School on Practice-Based Studies. This edition explores the distinctive methodological features of practice and process research as well as their similitudes and differences. The key speakers are Elizabeth Shove and Ann Langley. The event also includes Davide Nicolini, Hari Tsoukas, and Jorgen Sandberg.
