I'm passionate about understanding the psychological foundations of family businesses through my research. My research covers areas, such as, expression of emotions in the family business context; understanding of the stressors that family members employed in their family business face and how they help each other cope with them; understanding whether the pursuit of non-financial goals make family business members perceive themselves as psychologically fulfilled and happy. 

Some of my research interests are following: Emotional Labor, Socioemotional Wealth in Family Businesses, Emotional Support in Family Businesses, Psychological Capital, Emotional Intelligence, Subjective Wellbeing, Psychological Wellbeing, Non-financial goals, and so on.
