Personal profile


Cassandra joined Alliance Business School and the Work & Equalities Institute in 2021 and one of her current research projects is a Digital Futures at Work (DIGIT, ESRC centre) funded  project (2022-2023) looking at the impact of automation, robotics and digitisation, and the role of HRM practices in this process in the food manufacturing industry.

She will be building on this work with a project funded by the Productivity Institute (ESRC centre) examining the implications for productivity of the relationship between digital technologies, strategies around agency work and future skills in food manufacturing and telecommunications. 

She is an associate fellow at DIGIT, and a research fellow at the Institute for the Future of Work, as well as an associate member of the CIPD. 

Cassandra has long been interested in the manufacturing sector, and her PhD in Human Resource Management specifically looked at how sub-sectors within manufacturing ensure they have the skills they need in the future.  Her research expertise has over time been developed in skill development within the firm and the wider skill system, and the impact of new technologies such as Industry 4.0/digital technologies on future of work/skills in manufacturing.  She has undertaken research in the UK, Australia and Canada.
