RESEARCH

The backbone of my focus on work stress is research. It's a major component of my academic role, and underpins many of the solutions I offer to individuals, and organizations. My goal is to be a true scientist-practitioner, operating at the intersection of credible and forward thinking research, and grounded, practical solutions. Contact me if you would like to learn more about my research.
