Key Research Interests

My current research interests concern employment relations and workplace partnerships, employee attitudes and well-being, work-nonwork interferences, occupational safety management and the critical perspectives of human resource management. I am also interested in the relationships between working conditions, life course events, and the decisions individuals make within and outside the workplace.

My expertise lies in quantitative research methods and secondary data analysis. My research features a range of statistical techniques including multilevel modelling, structural equation modelling, multiple group analysis, logistic regressions, latent trait analysis, cluster analysis and mixture modelling. I am proficient in statistical software packages such as SPSS, AMOS, MLwin, STATA, Mplus and R software programming language.
