Introduction
My research interests center on processes of social inclusion in which marginalized actors seek to organize and work together to regain their (many times neglected) dignity. At a broader level, I am interested in understanding issues of power and resistance in and around organizations. I use mostly qualitative and ethnographic methods, which gives me the opportunity to get to know people, what they are passionate about, how they organize, and their struggles for bringing about social change.

Social movement scholars and activists have recognized the difficulties of mobilizing people for the long haul, moving from the exuberance of the protest to the dull and ordinary work necessary to produce sustainable change.

Article

In recent years there has been an outburst of studies aiming to advance our understanding of how actors do work to create, maintain and disrupt institutions.
