Publications & Research

I’m interested in workplace social relations, because people are important and unavoidable during the quarter of our lives spent at work. Keenly curious about leadership in particular, I study the often-uneven paths to get there as well as how leaders can make work and life fairer and more enjoyable for their employees and their families. Much of the last 10 years of my research, teaching, and consulting work also reflects my fascination by counterproductive motives, measures, and digital strategies that backfire for the persons or organizations they intend to help, as well as designing and testing evidence-informed solutions.
