    Current Position

    Assistant Professor

    Research interests

    I examine how people can build a successful career in today's labor market, despite challenges such as temporary employment, unemployment and changing economic conditions.

    Specifically, I focus on people's self-regulatory (proactive) behaviors to pursue a successful career, and the factors and processes that help people to cope with and thrive in today's labor market. I am particularly interested in the processes that provide people with better career opportunities and foster career success, such as career adaptability, employability, motivation (autonomous vs. controlled), optimal goal setting and proactive behavior.
