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.

My research focuses on health literacy and communication to promote health, equity and participation of individuals and populations. Especially, those who are at risk for adverse outcomes are an important target group within my research. Examples of populations at risk are children born prematurely, individuals with low health literacy, individuals with multiple unhealthy behaviours and children or adolescents with mental health problems.
