Since April 2017, I am working as Assistant Professor for the Work and Organizational Psychology team at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen in Germany. Also, I am Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom. My research interest is about diversity management, late career development and transition to retirement.
Prior to joining the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, I was a Senior Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University; and I was appointed the role as Co-Director at the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice. In my earlier days, I was doing my PhD at the Institute for Strategic Human Resource Management, Leuphana University of Lüneburg in Germany. Before and during my academic career, I have been working in both human resources management and management consulting.
My guiding principle in academia is to conduct high quality research that creates sustainable impact to society.
