Personal profile


My name is Araz, and I have a PhD in Strategic HRM and Change from Loughborough University. I joined the Huddersfield Business School in 2020 as a Lecturer in Management. Prior to that, I worked as an Associate Lecturer at Loughborough University's School of Business. I also taught in the Middle East. I've held in my professional career several HR-related positions such as HR Business Partner and Director of HR.

Research Expertise and Interests

I'm primarily interested in the potential of new technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain on work, employment, and the workplace, such as worker coexistence with AI, AI as an enabler of innovative behaviour, and Blockchain's contribution to human resource management. I'm also researching how human resource practises might help individuals and organisations adopt lean thinking and techniques.
