Claudia investigates the topic of burnout from an interdisciplinary perspective combining personnel psychology with labour economics. The focus is specifically on determinants of successful return to work upon reintegration in the labor market after a burnout episode.

Next to well-being, Claudia also specializes in other research topics like overqualification, job boredom, job crafting and diversity and inclusion, when it comes to hiring (e.g., targeted recruitment) and beyond. She finds it highly important to conduct business-relevant research and to answer real-life questions organizations struggle with.
