Back to overview

My main research interests include topics in the field of occupational health psychology, in specific the relationship between well-being and performance. A second important theme in my research concerns psychological aspects of entrepreneurship.

Current research projects I am involved in:

  • Studies comparing different forms of passion for work, in specific work engagement and workaholism. Using, for example, diary studies and the day reconstruction method, we seek to explore the relationship between passion for work, work performance, and worker well-being.
  • Studies on the bi-directional relationship between well-being and business success. Based on different self-regulation theories, our current studies focus on mechanisms that might explain the relationship between entrepreneurs' well-being and business performance.
  • Entrepreneurial performance. Studies on entrepreneurial performance include, for example, job-analyses to define entrepreneurs' and intrapreneurs' competencies, and studies on the predictive validity of the competencies that have been identified in previous research.
  • Leadership issues. This study encompasses a cross-level analysis of the relationship between leaders' characteristics (personality, emotional intelligence, engagement and burnout), organisational culture, and employees' performance and well-being.
