Key Research Interests:

Social information processing and social comparison theories; Relational models of justice and fairness theory; Resource theories: Work-Home Resources model and the COR (Conservation of Resources Theory); Flexible work practices; Job Demands - Resources Model; Broaden and build theory of emotions & affective events theory; Within-person variability of emotions, attitudes and of organizational behaviour; Daily and weekly diary design studies

Research Interests

My current research focuses on three different areas, with a broader framework of individualized and differentiated HRM practices.

1. Flexible work practices: My research in this stream seeks to understand the implications of flexitime, telecommuting, reduced load work and part-time from the perspective of receivers and non-receivers. I aim to disentangle how such practices unfold in a wider team context.

2. Idiosyncratic deals: In this research stream, I focus on the dynamics of I-deal making beyond these of the focal employee. In particular, I seek to understand a) how I-deals unfold and b) the effectiveness of these deals from employee, manager and co-worker perspectives. In a related stream of research, I integrate non-work and work domains to understand the dynamics of I-deal making.

3. Job crafting: My research in this specific topic looks at job crafting from a relational perspective and seeks to explore the extent to which job crafting is optimum and beneficial in teams. Moreover, I aim to delineate the darker side of job crafting behaviours.
