My research covers the areas of work stress and coping: particularly the appraisal process and its role in the coping process.
More recently I have been using sequential tree analysis to explore the patterns of coping strategies to gain a better understanding of the way in which different coping strategies are used. This type of analysis has also been extended to exploring components of appraisal and their patterning in relation to the emotional consequences of stress.
In addition to my work on stress and coping, I have an interest in human resource accounting and the importance of this to human resource professionals.
