Research interests

Technological innovations are introduced rapidly at the workfloor. In the healthcare sector, this concerns electronic health records, patient portals, care robots, and machine learning algorithms for the classification of medical images. In education, virtual learning environments, educational robots, learning analytics, and digital assessment are used. In logistic warehouses and factories, humans and robots increasingly work side by side. New technological innovations offer many opportunities (e.g. unburden employees, reduce errors, enhance efficiency), but also require constant adaptation and workplace learning. Moreover, technological innovations can contribute to the satisfaction of basic psychological needs (autonomy, competence, relatedness), but can also conflict with basic psychological needs. I am interested in the question how new technologies influence employee's performance and well-being. This knowledge is required to benefit from new technologies to their full extent, without losing sight of the needs and characteristics of the employees working with these technologies.
