Expert Statement

My research focuses on how organizations and employees can minimize the detrimental effects of work-related stress on well-being. For instance, what helps employees to deal with emotional work demands? How can employees recover from work stress and replenish their resources on a day-to-day basis? My expertise also lies on the role of mindfulness in these processes and the implementation of mindfulness-based interventions for employees.
