Dr Daniel Nicholson

Research student

Cardiff Business School


I am a PhD candidate in the Employment Research Unit at Cardiff Business School. My doctoral research examines the shopfloor politics of technological change in the aerospace sector.

My previous research has looked at unions and collective bargaining, the relationship between austerity and work intensification in the British care sector, and labour regulation in the gig economy.
