Research Focuses

My research focuses on using resources at the socioeconomic-, organizational-, and individual-levels to promote health and well-being of people at work, as well as prevent and attenuate the negative consequences of workplace stress.

Each year, workers around the globe experience approximately 260 million occupational injuries and 350,000 fatalities due to injuries sustained at work. Therefore, my first line of research attempts to promote workplace safety.

Job insecurity, coupled with its negative consequences, is likely to remain common in today’s working life plagued with organizational changes. As such, my second line of research attempts to search for possible interventions to mitigate the adverse impacts of job insecurity.

When conducting occupational health and safety research, I take social contexts into consideration. In doing so, I employ advanced methodology such as structural equation modeling and multilevel modeling, as well as multiple methodologies such as archival data, quasi-experiments, and qualitative data, to provide more valid results.
