Professor Brendan Burchell: The Future of Work
Join us for a fascinating webinar where Professor Brendan Burchell discusses his research into the ways in which our working lives affect our wellbeing, and what life might be like in a future world where robots and intelligent machines perform much more work and people do less.
Professor Brendan Burchell is a Fellow of Magdalene, a Professor in the Social Sciences and Director of Cambridge Undergraduate Quantitative Methods Centre. His research interests include the effects of labour market experiences (e.g. job insecurity, work intensification, bankruptcy, unemployment) on psychological well-being, analysis of complex work and life histories data, gender segregation, men’s and women’s life cycle and career, emotional reactions to personal finances (“Financial Phobia”), and the relationship between hours of work and well-being.
