prof. dr. S. Scheibe

Professor (adjunct) of Lifespan Development and Organizational Behavior

Susanne Scheibe is Professor (adjunct) of Lifespan Development and Organizational Behavior at the University of Groningen. Her research focuses on aging in the workplace. She is especially interested in emotional development across adulthood, how emotional changes with age affect people in work settings, and how work can be designed to foster each age groups' strengths. Current projects focus on age differences in workplace affect and short-term reactivity to daily work events; links between age, emotional job demands and occupational outcomes; and emotion regulation as a resource for older workers’ maintenance of health and effectiveness at work. Originally from Germany, Susanne Scheibe studied psychology at Humboldt University Berlin and was a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and Stanford University. In 2016, she was awarded the prestigious NWO VIDI grant for her research on the emotional benefits of growing older at work.
