Work and Organizational Psychology

Industrial and organizational psychology aims to describe, explain, predict, and influence human experience and behavior at work and in organizations. An applied psychology discipline, its goal is to use scientific knowledge to create practical benefits. Specifically, industrial and organizational psychology examines how working conditions and organizations must be designed so that people can perform well - without being impaired. In addition, it is about identifying personal characteristics and behaviors that help working people to cope well with the demands of their work.

My research mainly concerns social relationships and interpersonal behaviors at work. One focus is on the role of digitized communicationin relationship with work stress and recovery.
