Research Interests:

The PsychoEconomic Research Lab (PERL) deals with issues within the field of Work, Organzational and Economic Psychology. Research topics include: the interaction of demands and resources and their impact on employees’ health and performance, the effectiveness of various types of counseling as human resource development tools, causes and impact of impostor phenomenon in the workplace and to what extent various perspectives cause changes in economic behavior. We combine experimental laboratory research with research from within the field, in order to be able to respond to current challenges in the workplace.
