Dr Dulini Fernando

Associate Professor

Research Interests

Dulini takes a socio cultural lens using career as a conceptual tool to examine highly skilled employees' experiences of work. She works with a range of theoretical frameworks including structuration theory, social constructionism, institutional work and Bourdieu's theory of practice.

To date she has studied highly skilled workers in developing economies, in public and private organisations, in academia, highly skilled migrants and highly skilled women workers aiming to answer the following questions:

1.What are the structural barriers and paradoxes highly skilled workers encounter in pursuing their careers in the rapidly changing world of work? How do they deal with these and with what implications for a fair world of work ?
2. What are the recipes for success in the rapidly marketizing workplace? To what extent are these socially and culturally mediated?
