Asher is an economic sociologist with a passion for teaching the complexities of information systems in a business context. He has taught for nearly twenty years, but had a varied range of experiences before entering the Academy. He ran Comic Shops, swept streets and was a butler, before finding a place for his passion for networked information systems at the dawn of the internet age. During the 90s Asher built web sites and e-commerce publishing systems, eventually leading transnational software development projects for ZDNet. 

Asher has worked with Tom and Sue on a number of projects relating to graduate employment and what it is employers value in graduates. We call our findings the New-Vocationalism. The idea is simple, that employers value that graduates have the willingness and ability to learn in employment.  

Asher’s current research is into understanding the role of social media for job seeking graduates. He has published on graduate employability, signalling and human capital and the history of universities, action learning and New-Vocationalism in a range of journals including International Journal of Social Economics, Higher Education Review and Action Learning Research and Practice.  

Away from work and research Asher is an enthusiastic cook, cocktail maker and father of three. With his wife Mitch and dog Cleo he spends much time walking the Sussex south downs, or sleeping by a fire in his tipi.
