The overarching theme of my research and teaching is the sustainable functioning of organizations and their employees, with a specific interest in the management of change and adaptation processes on the individual, team, and organizational level.
My key areas of expertise are worker sustainable employability, (social) innovation, intervention research, worker health and well-being, and leadership.
In my current research and teaching, I particularly focus on the implementation and adoption of new technologies such as AI and robotics that increasingly impact on many aspects of our work as well as our private lives. Consequently, people continuously need to shift the way they do their (work) activities.
In order to be successful, these technologies have to fit the social contexts in which they are used. This requires taking human factors into account in the design and implementation of technological innovations, thus enabling people to properly and satisfactorily use them. Key to this are the 3C's.
