Adam Badger is a Research Assistant at the Fairwork Foundation. He is also a PhD student at Royal Holloway, University of London in the departments of Geography and Management.
From this interdisciplinary perspective, his work focuses on the lived experiences of work in the gig-economy (both that of geographically tethered work, such as food delivery or ride hail driving, as well as the globally distributed microwork taking place on platforms such as Amazon Mechanical Turk). In particular, he is interested in the ways in which the technologies interact with the labour process, unpacking the sociomaterially constructed practices of contemporary labour.
He currently holds a BA and MA(research) in Geography from Royal Holloway, University of London.
