Yuliya’s research project centres on exploring job quality within the domain of algorithmic work, encompassing both gig and cloud work. While previous studies often focused on specific dimensions of job quality, this research adopts a multidimensional perspective. To achieve this, it utilizes the comprehensive index, which not only accounts for multidimensionality but also weights each dimension according to its importance to 'good' work. By comparing gig and cloud work covering a national context, leveraging a larger quantitative sample, and addressing the limited focus on cloud work, her research aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of algorithmic work's job quality dynamics. Its potential impact extends to both academia and policymaking, aligning with the growing importance of job quality in government agendas and contributing to the broader discourse on job quality in the context of algorithmic work.
