Biography

My primary research objectives are directed towards understanding the interface between work and working conditions and the improvement of individual well-being, health and performance. Recent activities have considered the potential contributions from biological psychology and behavioural medicine and the development of organisational neurosciences. The role of organisations in improving and promoting physical and mental health is of particular interest. The objective is to explore the potential combinations of physiological markers (e.g., neuroendocrine and immune responses, sleep data) with a psychological approach (e.g., fatigue, task complexity, task autonomy) and organisational data (e.g., work schedules, teamwork) to workplace results and individual health and well-being. 

Current research activities focus on occupational stress, fatigue and health (i.e., circadian stress, sleep deprivation and recovery, job characteristics and sleep hygiene) and the development of interventions that help promote physical and psychological well-being and health.
