Jakob Stollberger, Ph.D., is an associate professor of organizational behavior at the Department of Management and Organisation of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and an international research affiliate at the National University of Singapore (see AiTH NUS Business School). Prior to joining the School of Business and Economics at VU, he held various research positions at Aston Business School, Cambridge Judge Business School, and the University of Birmingham in the UK.
As a work psychologist, Jakob explores various ways how behavioral insights can support organizations in their day-to-day work. His research agenda focuses on themes that lie at the intersection between organizations and society, such as issues around how leaders can promote or derail organizational innovation efforts, how work influences family dynamics, as well as how humans can best work together with artificial intelligence (AI) in the not-too-distant future of work. In empirically exploring these themes, he relies on his expertise in study design (e.g., experience sampling studies and randomized controlled trials) and quantitative data analysis (e.g., latent growth modeling and multilevel modeling).
