Dmitrijs joined the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga as Assistant Professor in 2019, having previously worked at the University of Warwick and the University of Sussex. Prior to this, he completed an ESRC-funded Doctorate in Management from the University of Warwick Business School, focusing on the development of practice-based theory of organizational memory. He remains affiliated with the Innovation, Knowledge and Organisational Networks Research Unit at the Warwick Business School.
His primary research interests revolve around understanding the effects of collective knowledge and memory on organizations and on the process of organizing; looking at questions such as 'who decided what qualifies as knowledge' and 'how is information and knowledge perpetuated through time'. His secondary research interest lie in exploring the impact of digital technologies on organizational design (i.e. what happens when people begin working for algorithms etc.). Dmitrijs is a versatile qualitative researcher with experience in both public (NHS) and private (architecture and construction) sectors, using a range of different methods. His current research looks at the role of collaborative technology in (re)shaping institutionalised regimes of practices. He is also part of Horizon 2020 research project (DISCE) that looks into the sustainability of creative economies in the EU.
