His research focuses on HRM, technology and innovation, approached from a multilevel perspective. Particularly he is interested in combining two main areas, (1) employee-driven innovation and (2) innovative and high-tech HRM activities. The first area is focused on how organizations can stimulate and facilitate bottom-up innovation by work-floor employees. The second area entails studying new technologies (e.g. Artificial Intelligence) and novel management practices (e.g. self-management) have an impact on both HRM and Innovation practices.
