Audrey L. Holm

I am a PhD Candidate in Management and Organizations at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. I primarily adopt an ethnographic approach to reflect on how people experience and relate to their work, organizations and occupations.

My research focuses on shifting occupational dynamics, evolving relationships and meaning at work, inclusion and new labor market challenges. In my dissertation, I examine the work of counselors specialized in helping formerly incarcerated jobseekers.

I was a finalist in the 2020 INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition and was the recipient of Questrom’s 2020 Award for Outstanding Research by a Doctoral Student.

I hold a Master of Business Administration from ESSEC Business School in Paris, France. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as an operations manager, business development manager and consultant in the public transportation industry.
