His current research interests are on the psychology of human-computer interactions in the workplace, in order to promote individual wellbeing and organizational productivity. He is exploring the character and wellbeing associations of Virtual Reality (VR).  He is also intrigued by how people navigate their multiple roles across work and non-work domains. As technology introduces flexibility in the nature, design and how work is done, Dr. Ohu studies the implications for work-life balance that this permeability introduces. Finally, as computers now make it easier to collect and analyse behavioural data about people and business processes, he uses “Big Data” to provide insights useful for human resource and marketing communications decisions.
