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

For creativity and brainstorming, I'm interested in the way in which sharing ideas helps or harms people's creativity, which will likely differ per person. Whereas novel and flexible ideas will be beneficial for some, others' creativity and productivity will benefit more from everyday and structured ideas.
For flow, I'm interested in how flow experiences help to reach your full potential, and how such an experience adds to your (creative) performance.

I am fascinated with change in organizations; how people respond, the dynamics that occur and the complexities of organizing change for those in charge, the change leaders. Although I am interested in all sorts of organizational change processes, my PhD thesis particularly focused on the complexities of organizing change in medical school’s undergraduate curricula.
Topics: undergraduate curriculum change, medical education, complexity, challenges and strategies of change leaders, situational awareness, governance, the role of local institutional contexts in international curriculum development projects.
