Research expertise

Globalization is bringing many changes to the positions and skills required of institutions and individuals. In this context of constant change, workplace training is becoming increasingly important. But it must be recognized that training programs do not always produce concrete changes in workplace behaviour. My research program revolves around this issue of transfer of learning. Starting from theories and models concerning changes in behaviour, it identifies the parameters that influence and enhance transfer of learning. The research mainly takes place in the actual workplace and involves descriptive or causal longitudinal data collection. The research methodologies are sometimes experimental, sometimes descriptive and invariably call for the use of sophisticated statistical analysis techniques and methods.
