My About Me page provides a thumbnail sketch of who I am. This page, is more about what I'm doing and planning to do now.

    The biggest thing is that I'm now on Research and Study Leave (RSL/sabbatical) for a year (until 23 January 2023). So much of what I'm doing now—work wise—is about my research projects.

    Other things are sort of hanging off that big endeavour.

    Travel plans

    • HICSS56 3rd–6th January 2023 in Maui. The oldest and most popular conferences on Service Science. This was a good conference, I can see why it is the biggest. The venue was pretty good too.
    • Process workshop at the University of Queensland, 14th February 2023 in Brisbane. This looks like a great session with Ann Langley, and Paula Jarzabkowski.
    • Visit to the University of Zurich From April to August, I'll be visiting with David Seidl and his research group at the Univserity of Zurich.
    • Visit to the University of Oslo, June 2023. The plan is to work with my co-authors on our paper on multi-sided platforms.
    • European Group on Organizational Studies (EGOS), 6th–8th July 2023 in Sardinia, I regard EGOS as my intellectual home as far as conferences are concerned. With Covid-19 and other things it's been a few years since I was last at one (Naples, 2016).
    • Academy of Management Annual General Meeting (AoM), 4th–8th August 2023 in Boston. This will be my first time at AoM. Normally, it would clash with my teaching obligations, but this year, as I'm on Research and Study leave …

    • Bach Partitas Nos. 1–6 on the piano by Igor Levit I 'discovered' these through Dana Stevens at the Slate Culture Gabfest. Well, not this particular recording, but the piano version of the partitas.
