I'm interested in changing work environment and its impact on worker health. In particular, I investigate the role of creative work tasks for well-being.
Within my line of research, I explore different forms of psychological measurement. I develop questionnaires, online surveys, behavioural coding systems and diary based methodologies. I'm especially interested in evaluating workplace interventions in terms of both effect and process evaluations.
