Dr. Kelly Thomson completed her PhD at the Schulich School of Business at York University. Her research crosses multiple empirical contexts but focuses on processes of organizing and change using post-structuralist approaches. Her two current projects both focus on professionals negotiating change: the first uses a practice lens to analyse a multi-site organizational change initiative in healthcare and the second examines career trajectories of accounting professionals migrating to Canada.
