Dr Phoebe Veronice Moore
senior lecturer, Middlesex University; author, The Quantified Self in Precarity: Work, Technology and What Counts

Dr Moore writes about production, technology and global governance. In particular she is interested in digitalization of work and the application of new technologies in workplaces and spaces, from human resource practices like people analytics and the use of biometric big data for accelerated profiling, to the trends in automation, machine learning and the rise of the algorithmic boss. Moore is particularly interested in assistive, selective and monitoring technologies and their surrounding management methods and risks to workers in the services and manufacturing industries, including the risks of psychosocial violence for gig workers on the streets and in homes. Her two most recent books (2017) are called The Quantified Self in Precarity: Work, Technology and What Counts; and Humans and Machines at Work. Moore works at Middlesex University, London, in the law and politics department and does a lot of work in industry, with unions and for the International Labor Organization.
