My research interests fall under the broad category of occupational health psychology. Specifically, my research focuses on the work-life interface, and individual and work influences on safety. Within the work-life interface, I am particularly interested in the idea of transitioning, both psychologically and physically, between the work and non-work domains with a particular emphasis on spillover between domains. I have examined a variety of topics within this area, with my most recent research seeking to understand the influence of workplace attitudes and experiences on employees’ commuting behaviors. I have also recently become interested in the influence of informal eldercare responsibilities on employees’ individual and work outcomes. Within individual and work influences on safety, I am particularly interested in the influence of climate factors and psychosocial attitudes on employee safety behaviors.
