PhD programme in Human Sciences - 32° Ciclo (October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2019)

Doctorate research program
My research focuses on how/when/why employees proactively engage in behaviors to manage the relationship between their job demands and resources. Moreover, it aims at furthering knowledge on how to sustain these self-management practices through motivational/implementation interventions in the workplace.

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Human Sciences, with a specialization in Work and Organizational Psychology at Verona University.
My primary research interest lies in the study of the processes and dynamics of the antecedents of proactive behaviors in the workplace, i.e. job crafting, and on the effects of workplace interventions aiming at sustaining employee empowerment and positive proactive behaviors.
In my research, I make use of latent change score models, growth mixture models, and multilevel modeling to understand the role of time in influencing cognitive and contextual factors related to employee behaviors. I also conduct behavior change interventions -quasi-experimental research designs, with motivational and/or implementation interventions- in working contexts to sustain employees’ self-management of their own work characteristics.

Research groups

APRESO - Applied Research in Society and Organizations
APRESO (Applied Research in Society and Organizations) is the name of a group of scholars and practitioners dealing with research and interventions in social and work and organizational psychology fields. As for the social field, members of APRESO deal, for example, with dynamics of cooperation and competition, self-centered (selfish) and other-centered (altruistic) behaviors, the phenomenon of volunteering and social innovation. As for work and organizational psychology, members of APRESO deal, for example, with learning and training, differences between different professional roles, work socialization and organizational innovation. APRESO adopts a scientist-practitioner approach according to which research is oriented by practical needs and interventions are designed based on those models that have obtained valid and reliable empirical support. Finally, APRESO makes use of both qualitative and quantitative approaches, as well as mixed methods, in order to carry out studies and implement interventions, annexing scholars from different fields of social research (psychologists, pedagogists, sociologists, economists, etc.).
