Research Interests

My research focuses on the impact of daily and enduring influences on work – non-work relationships and occupational health.  A primary focus of my current research is exploring the impact of transient and enduring influences on employee work – non-work relationship perceptions over varying time frames.  Another current emphasis in my research involves investigating the contributions of specific daily events, personality traits, and work characteristics to the duration of the post-work stress response.  I have also recently begun to extend my research to educational contexts, through investigations of technology usage demands and strategies in student populations.  A major area of interest in this line of research will be establishing how students use technology to integrate academic and non-academic aspects of their lives.
