Research interests

Personal values and norms, sustainability in the flexible work context, well-being and productivity during the COVID-19 crisis.

In her research, Eva investigates personal values and their impact on workplace behavior. Her primary focus is on environmentally friendly behavior in the workplace (e.g., how should HR frame goals to motivate as many employees as possible to engage in eco-friendly behavior?). She also delves into people's consumption behavior, with a particular emphasis on clothing consumption and the associated emotions (e.g., how should marketing strategies be structured to 'encourage' reduced consumption?).

Eva is an active member of the European Association of Health Psychology and the Academy of Management.
