As a PhD student at the department Human Resource Studies of Tilburg University, I conduct scientific research on the topics of career development, sustainable employability, social security, and employment relationships of solo self-employed workers. I often visit (inter)national conference (e.g., Chicago, Turin, Birmingham, and Amsterdam) to present my research. Based on one of my research projects, I design interventions and tools for HR professionals to successfully build employment relationships with freelancers.
As a PhD student, I conduct research on the career development, sustainable employability, social security and employment relationships of solo self-employed workers. My expertise lies in the area of qualitative research. Besides doing research that is scientifically relevant, I focus on the societal impact of my research projects.
Being a lecturer at the department Human Resources Studies, I teach courses such as Coaching & Development and Academic Skills, in which the focus is on developing academic writing skills and (inter)personal skills. Besides, I supervise Bachelor and Master students with writing their thesis on topics related to the career development and sustainable employability of solo self-employed workers and human resource management.
As a PhD candidate, I collaborate with my supervisors Prof. dr. Dorien Kooij, Prof. dr. Rob Poell en dr. Charissa Freese. Furthermore, I conduct research together with dr. Chen Fleisher (Maudify), dr. Jos Akkermans (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), dr. Mattis van den Bergh (Tilburg Universrity), dr. Silvia Rossetti (Panteia), and Prof. dr. Andrew Burke (Trinity College Dublin).
As a Post-doc researcher on the project ‘Future of Work’ (funded by Institute GAK), I collaborate with dr. Charissa Freese, dr. Irmgard Borghouts-van de Pas, and Jeske van Beurden MSc. The aim of this research project is exploring how we need to redefine the field of HRM as the emergence of robots and digitalization is evolving.
