She is also a Professor of Sociology, one of the Executive Directors of the Web Science Institute and Chair of the ESRC IAA. She was a Founding Member of the Work Futures Research Centre. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Turing Fellow.
Pauline's principle research interests are in diversity and the changing nature of work. She investigates the impact of organisational and technological change on working lives and careers, and how these are intersected by gender, race, age and social background. She researches these issues in both national and international contexts and is well known for her research on skilled migration and whiteness.
Pauline is currently engaged in a project funded by the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems on Trustworthy Human Robot Teams. The research investigates how work teams and clients within two sectors: Industrial Cleaning and Prostate Surgery construct robots as trustworthy.
