Current Research Activities
Aditya's expertise lies in maximising organisational productivity, quality, innovation and workers' wellbeing, all of which are linked to the way work is designed and the way in which organisations are managed.

His research has focused on the management of psychosocial factors at work and the translation of occupational health and safety knowledge into policy and practice. He also has a keen interest in the role of business in society, particularly in relation to human resource management. More specifically, Aditya's work has focused on establishing the role of softer forms of policy, such as voluntary standards, social dialogue and corporate social responsibility in the area of managing working conditions, particularly in developing countries where legislative frameworks may be weak or non-existent.

Aditya has worked on several projects, funded by the European Commission, its agencies and charities such as the British Council and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, which have focused on the management of psychosocial risks and work-related stress as well as the promotion of wellbeing and mental health at the workplace.
I am currently supervising the following Research Students:
