Background

Before joining Anglia Ruskin in 2012, Marina worked as a research associate at the Department of Social Psychology in the University of Seville, Spain. During this time, she participated in several projects related to work-life balance, interpersonal conflict, diversity management and gender equity at work. Marina is originally from Brazil, where she worked as a marketing intern, learning & development specialist and recruitment consultant in companies like Praxair and Shell. She is also an AIESEC alumni, and served as a team member in Brazil and a volunteer in Poland.

Research interests

Marina’s interests lie in the reciprocal relationship between work and self over time. Her current research focuses on the dynamics between job demands-resources and individual functioning, particularly self-regulation, positive organisational behaviour and well-being at work. She also develops research on work and non-work interface, mainly on the co-occurrence of conflicting and enriching experiences between work and home. Her main areas of research are:

  • Self-regulation and positive organisational behaviour
  • Job design and well-being at work
  • Work and non-work interface

Areas of research supervision

  • Self-regulation and positive organisational behaviour (e.g. self-control, psychological capacities, personal resources, compassion)
  • Job design and wellbeing at work (e.g. job demands and resources, job characteristics, stress, burnout, work engagement, job crafting)
  • Work and non-work interface (e.g. work-life balance, work-family conflict, work-family enrichment, boundary management, work-life policies)

Teaching

Marina teaches business research methods as well as organisational behaviour and human resource management, with focus on evidence-based management skills, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Topics include flexibility at work, well-being at work, motivation, organisational culture, among others.
