Brian’s PhD focussed on the experts’ use of information and communication technology in the workplace. Drawing on Heidegger’s philosophy, it developed new ways of thinking about bodily presence at work, connecting to the challenges workers face when mediating technologies are used to communicate with others.
Brian has published in journals, such as Qualitative Research, focussing on how the body is used in a variety of workplace situations. His article examined how a commercial pilot used his body to fly aeroplanes for a large commercial airline company. Brian is also interested in precarious work and the increased use of automation in society. He has also written work on ideas for a universal basic income.
