Research

My research interests concern intra-organisational relationships and how they can be developed to enhance a range of individual and organisational outcomes including health and well-being. Specific current interests include: altruism; co-operation; and job crafting.

A second avenue of interest concerns the development and validation of research methods and techniques. I have a particular expertise in cognitive mapping and am currently investigating the application of physiological measures of stress.

I am also an active supporter of the management research community (examples):
