DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
I am interested in occupational stress and recovery from work stressors such as psychological detachment from works both at work and non-work settings and how new technology (e.g., smartphones), affects the recovery process. In terms of my initial research interest, I have been interested in workplace discrimination and diversity issues such as the management of invisible stigma identities (e.g., religion and drinking norm) and now I am thinking to extend this initial research interest to the experiences of newly immigrated employees in the workplace. My main current research focuses on how employees recover from their work stressors and fatigue in the work setting and a new type of recovery process with advanced technology such as smartphones.
