I got my Psychology Degree at Universidad de La Laguna (Canary Islands, Spain). I completed my dissertation, awarded with the European PhD (Doctor Europaea), in 2006 at University of Valencia (Spain) in the Work and Organizational Psychology Interuniversity Doctoral Program. In 2007, I moved to Virginia (USA) to do research as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at George Mason University for two years. I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Delaware for a year before starting at University of Guelph on May 2010.


The overarching goal of my research is to provide empirical evidence guiding the effective and positive management of occupational health and performance in organizations. 

My research involves the disciplines of occupational health psychology and positive organizational psychology and focuses on stress, work-life and gender diversity, workplace mistreatment and victimization, workplace incivility and civility, emotion regulation and the implementation and evaluation of evidence-based interventions to improve occupational psychological well-being. The following are my main lines of research:

WORK STRESS AND EUSTRESS. We are studying the antecedents and outcomes of challenge-hindrance appraisal in collaboration with various labs around the world: Dr. Peiro and Dr. Rodriguez (IDOCAL, Universitat de Valencia, Spain), Dr. Neves (Universidade Nova de Lisboa).

JOBS IN POSITIVE: LOOKING AT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF WORK. A program of research developed with researchers from Germany (Dr. Michel, Dr. Hoppe, Dr. Steide) and Ireland (Dr. Oshea) on experiential sampling studies that explore the relationships between work and non-work domains.

WORK-LIFE RELATIONSHIPS. Founded by SSHRC (Insight Development Grant) this project aims to examine using diary and multilevel methods, the relations between work life and personal life over time in order to understand how change and time shape the dynamic interplay among the roles in our daily lives (worker, caregiver, friend, etc.).

GENDER AND SEXUAL DIVERSITY IN THE WORKPLACE. This program of research studies issues such as gender inequality in the workplace and workplace experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals.

RESPECTFUL WORKPLACES. This line of research aims to understand respectful workplaces by developing conceptual, theoretical and methodological contributions such as reflective measures of victimization, theoretical models of workplace civility and meta-analytic research of incivility.

EMOTION REGULATION IN THE WORKPLACE. In collaboration with Dr. Margaret Lumley, we are working on mobile applications to train emotional regulation in young adults. We are investigating how these applications can be used in workplaces to improve organizational climate, social relationships, and occupational well-being. Emotion Savvy is the application developed in collaboration with Emotional Apps.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP. I have developed different research projects within this line. A multidisciplinary collaboration with faculty and students from Arts, Psychology, and Engineering involves the study of soft skill training in higher education and how it relates to career development. In Argentina, I work with Dr. Batlle (Universidad de Buenos Aires) to research the correlates of career maturity in Latino American countries. Finally, I do research on nascent entrepreneurship with colleagues from Portugal (Dr. Neves and Dr. Lopez, Nova Business School) and Spain (Dr. Diaz, Universidad de La Laguna).

These lines of research are developed at the Occupational Health and Positive Psychology Lab (OHPP LAB). I currently supervise 5 graduate students and an average of 10 undergraduate students per semester.
