Papers Taught

Research Supervised

I supervise projects in organisational psychology, usually with a focus on well-being, the role of personality and authenticity at work.

Research Interests

I'm interested in how we can improve people's well-being at work and the various factors that influence our well-being, from Human Resource Management practices to individual personality. I'm engaged in research which investigates individual differences in personality consistency and how different people experience authenticity. The role of self-awareness in well-being is of particular interest to me, especially questions around how we can develop self-awareness and how this might influence our well-being.
