My research lies at the intersection of business management and technology. I am a ‘future of work’ researcher with a specific interest in emerging technologies (AI, virtual reality, robotics) and digital technologies (ICTs, algorithms). I explore how these technologies will affect the future of management within the context of employee/leader attitudes, behaviors, psychological traits, and organizational neuroscience. The interdisciplinary nature of these topics has allowed me to collaborate with OB, leadership, HR, and HRD researchers in the US, Slovenia, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, and biomedical engineers in Spain. I also involve graduate students in my research projects.
