In her last role at SHL as Managing Scientist R&D she directed the research and product development of the UK R&D Team and was responsible for SHL's personality and motivation assessment tools. Her work also focused on the product development for the assessment of leadership potential and employee engagement to increase employee engagement, retention and performance.

She is also a BPS certified test user for Occupational Testing and an SHL/CEB (now Gartner) certified trainer for Occupational Testing.

Her research focuses on employee well-being (e.g. work engagement) and work behaviour and her recent projects have examined the relationship between leadership and employee well-being and the use of technology to improve well-being at work. Her research interests also include the assessment of work motivation, personality and performance and career development and transitions (e.g. work motivation and age). She has published in leading journals such as Organizational Research Methods, Work, Employment and Society, International Journal of Management Reviews, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, European Journal of Work & Organizational Psychology, Human Resource Management and Journal of Vocational Behaviour.
