Researching Precariousness across the Paid/Unpaid Work Continuum

I am a post-doc in this project while Valeria Pulignano is the PI. Project analysises unpaid labour in economic relationships (unpaid overtime, financial contributions of employees towards their work).

The research is sponsored by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement n° 833577).
