I am academically interested in employee ownership. In particular, I am trying to assess the applicability and effectiveness of employee ownership in low wage sectors as one of possible solutions of the working-poor problems.

And in relation with issues of democratic and participatory workplace culture, which is an important component of successful employee ownership schemes, I am also interested in the future evolution of the high involvement work systems (HIWS) and labor-management partnership.
