I am interested in how organizational factors, work-nonwork interface, and personal characteristics interact to affect employee health, safety, and well-being. All of this fits into the newly emerging interdisciplinary field of occupational health psychology. My students, colleagues and I study counterproductive work behavior (things people do that harm coworkers and employers such as aggression and theft), interpersonal conflict, job attitudes, job stress, work-family conflict, and workplace violence. We also study how personality affects each of these areas. Finally, several of these areas have been studied internationally with a series of cross-cultural/cross-national studies.
We have several research thrusts going on at the current time.
1. Counterproductive work behavior: We are studying potential antecedents of these behaviors to better understand why they occur.
2. Workplace violence: We are studying how the climate of an organization contributes to violence.
3. Work-family conflict: We are studying cultural/country differences in the causes and consequences.
4. Job stress: We are studying cultural/country differences in workplace stress.
