Scientific Focus

Research Group Work and Health

We research at the interface between work and organizational psychology, psychobiology and health psychology. Our research focuses on flow experience, stress, and well-being at work. We examine various work-related stressors (e.g., time pressure, multitasking, and unfinished tasks) and resources and measure their effects on flow experience, well-being, and performance. Our studies take place in the lab and in the field, and we look at outcomes at both the individual and team levels. We use research findings to develop interventions that we implement and evaluate in the lab and in the field. For our studies, we often use physiological measures such as cortisol, heart rate variability, or skin conductance. Furthermore, we use the flow concept for human-centered design of human-machine interaction. We also conduct research on the happiness of patients with chronic (dermatological) diseases.
