I am broadly interested in emotional development across the working lifespan, older employees’ resources (emotional competencies), their  affective experience and motivation.

In my PhD research I will investigate under which conditions older employees can be particularly effective mentors and can be engaged by obtaining mentoring opportunities to increase individual and organizational productivity.

In a number of studies, I will test a lifespan model of mentoring that highlights a combination of emotional abilities, generativity motivation, and organizational opportunities to mentor as mechanisms linking mentor age to positive outcomes for employees and organizations.
