Personal profile

Research interests

My current research focuses on three different areas, with a broader framework of individualized and differentiated HRM practices.

1. Flexible work practices: My research in this stream seeks to understand the implications of flexitime, telecommuting, reduced load work and part-time from the perspective of receivers and non-receivers. I aim to disentangle how such practices unfold in a wider team context.

2. Idiosyncratic deals: In this research stream, I focus on the dynamics of I-deal making beyond these of the focal employee. In particular, I seek to understand a) how I-deals unfold and b) the effectiveness of these deals from employee, manager and co-worker perspectives. In a related stream of research, I integrate non-work and work domains to understand the dynamics of I-deal making.

3. Job crafting: My research in this specific topic looks at job crafting from a relational perspective and seeks to explore the extent to which job crafting is optimum and beneficial in teams. Moreover, I aim to delineate the darker side of job crafting behaviours.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am interested in supervising and collaborating with potential Ph.D. students on following topics:

1. Flexible careers: Family supportive supervisor behaviours, work-family balance, family motivation, career transitions and career development. 

2. Individualised HR practices: Idiosyncratic deals, co-worker social comparison, the sustainability and effectiveness of individualised HRM, the implications of hRM practices for team members and focal employees

3. Employee well-being, work engagement and emotions. 

Method wise, I carry out my research using quantitative data (i.e., surveys, diary designs, panel data, longitudinal data). I aim to help Ph.D. students write and publish articles as they continue on with their studies. I therefore welcome paper-route Ph.D. student applications. ​
