Research summary

I am generally interested in research on stress, coping, and well-being. The aim of my current research is to examine the level of stress among police officers and to evaluate the association between stress factors, coping strategies, and psychological well-being. Additionally this study will seek to determine the implications for the professional integrity of officers including attitude towards misconduct, deviant behaviour, and use of force.
