Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field.

Overview of all disciplines

My research focuses on vanishing boundaries between work- and non-work life as one aspect of today´s rapidly changing working conditions. I investigate the impact of these changes on employee well-being and performance as well as the role of modern information and communication technology. My aim is to generate knowledge to understand topical societal phenomena and to bridge the scientist-practitioner gap by communicating scientific knowledge to a wide audience of scientists from various disciplines, professionals working in the field, students, and wider society.

Keywords: stress, occupational health, work-related well-being, recovery, leisure, work, non-work, leisure crafting, job crafting, creativity, work engagement, diary studies, longitudinal research, ecological momentary assessments

Consumer psychology, persuasion, unconscious influence, consumer self-regulation, nudging and heuristics, consumer health and well-being, food-related decision making.

I am deeply fascinated by what you could label "Hidden Persuasion": how subtle (and not so subtle) marketing cues influence consumers in their emotions, thoughts and behavior, frequently without them being aware of this influence. The results of this research can aid in empowering consumers and foster health and wellbeing. Please see the research page for an overview of published work in these areas
