With a background in human resources, my primary area of research is mentoring with supporting areas of interest in careers, family business and social networks. I am currently working on projects related to organizational change, turnover, and developmental networks.
Along with Prof Karin Sanders, I recently started a new research lab (industry and university-funded): Hybrid Work Leadership (HWL). HWL is an applied and translational research lab of UNSW Business School on the topic of hybrid and flexible work arrangements. With specific expertise on learning organisations and activities, human resource management, and employee work relationships, our lab is based on both industry deliverables and research outcomes with an emphasis on creating better organisations via adoptions of different hybrid work strategies.
