Director, Work Stress and Recovery Lab

My research focuses on investigating how employees perceive, react to, and recover from work stress both at home and during the workday. Currently, my research program consists of three major streams of research, comprising the investigation of (1) off-job reactions to work stress, (2) work recovery processes, and (3) individual and work characteristics that contribute to the integration of work and non-work life. Active research projects include studies targeted at understanding how supervisors influence their subordinates' efforts to recover from work stress, the role of information and communication technology devices (e.g., smartphones, laptops, etc.) in employee stress and recovery processes, and how individual differences contribute to the integration of work and non-work aspects of life.
