Bio

I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Psychology at Tilburg University, senior researcher at IDEWE (a Belgian external service for prevention and protection at work), and Guest Professor at the Research Group of Work and Organizational Psychology of Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) and the Research Group Environment and Health of the University of Leuven (Belgium).

My research interests include job insecurity and organizational change, employee well-being, informational and procedural justice, and hybrid ways of working (e.g., telework, new ways of working). I am interested in processes over time and intra-individual changes, and using prospective survey data and statistical methodologies (e.g., cross-lagged SEM, longitudinal multilevel pad analysis) to investigate such processes. In addition to basic research, I am passionate about prevention and applied research in the field of work and organizational psychology.
