Audrey L. Holm

I am a PhD Candidate in Management and Organizations at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. In my research, I mostly use a qualitative/ethnographic approach. I reflect on how people experience and interpret their work, their interactions and the cultures that surround them.

I am especially interested in topics related to shifting occupational practices, relationships at work, and societal challenges associated with labor market dynamics.

Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked in public service organizations on climate change adaptation policies and as an operations manager, business development manager and consultant in the public transportation industry.

I hold a Master of Business Administration from ESSEC Business School in Paris, France, with a specialization in Urban Economics.
