CURRENT RESEARCH

  • Work-life balance and a sustainable use of communication technologies: which methods and strategies are effective in promoting recovery for employees?
  • Switching from cell- and open plan offices to an activity based office: effects on sedentary behavior, concentration and health.
  • Test the effects of alternating physical and cognitive workload on performance, fatigue and recovery.
  • Specifying which cognitive functions become fatigued during prolonged work, and which activities and environmental factors promote restoration of these functions.
