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.
