Dragos is Lecturer in Human Resource Management and Employment Relations at Sheffield University Management School. He is a member of the Work, Organisation and Employment Relations Research Centre (WOERRC) located within the Management School.

Before joining the Management School, he worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at the Central European University (CEU), Center for Policy Studies in Budapest, Hungary. 

His research focuses on labour market reforms and their impact on job quality as well as on systems of industrial relations in Central and Eastern Europe. His work combines quantitative large-n analyses with fine grained in depth comparative historical narratives. Generally, he uses both macro-level traditional institutionalist theories as well as actor-centred and behavioural approaches that take into account individual responses to policy changes. He is also interested in industrial relations and the factors that account for the trade union power at the local and national levels.

His work has been published in Economic and Industrial Democracy, European Journal of Industrial Relations, European Urban and Regional Studies, and IZA Journal of Labour Policy amongst others.
