My research interests include workplace mistreatment (e.g., (cyber)bullying and sexual harassment), technology (e.g., technostress) and wellbeing. In my work, I integrate frameworks from different literatures (e.g., organizational behavior, social psychology, and communication sciences) as to investigate why people misbehave, how technology is changing the world of work and how we can promote employee well-being . I do this using a variety of research methods (e.g., surveys, and experience sampling) and analytic techniques (e.g., multilevel analyses).

Besides being a passionate researcher, I am a strong believer of bridging the science-practitioner gap. I have worked in close collaboration with several organizations in the past to provide workshops with the goal of shaping company policies and stimulating new ways of thinking about the employee-employer relationship. I also truly enjoy teamwork and welcome collaborations with people who share my passion for research and teamwork.
