Bori is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Work and Organizations at the Carlson School of Management. Her emerging program of research brings together three research streams: job search and job transitions, alternative work arrangements, and resource allocation in and across work and nonwork domains. Through a study of individuals working in the film industry, her dissertation explores the experience and process of continual job search and job change among gig careerists (freelancers working sequential projects in temporary organizations). In her research and in the classroom, Bori draws on over six years of industry experience in luxury hospitality and higher education administration.
