Dr Daisy Chung is a Senior Lecturer in Management at the Business School, City, University of London. Prior to joining the Business School, she completed a PhD in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, where she was a member of the Center for Work, Technology and Organization.
Dr Chung uses qualitative methods to conduct inductive research on technical work situated in specific sociopolitical contexts. Her dissertation examined the American biodiesel field to understand how members managed an uncertain regulatory and political environment and engaged in strategic collective action. In other research with co-authors, she studies occupational communities, examining processes such as coordination, organizational control, and jurisdictional change. In recent work, she is examining how technology firms are shaping the recruitment, interviewing, and hiring process in organizations.
