Teaching and Research Interests

Dr. Seonghee (Sophia) Cho’s research program focuses on the topics in psychological measurement and occupational health psychology (OHP). In the measurement, she is particularly interested in investigating the psychometric properties of complex constructs (e.g., emotional intelligence) and multidimensional test formats. In the OHP area, she examines the mechanism of employee health, safety, and well-being. Specific topics in her past studies include work-family demands, leisure, sleep, and recovery. More recent projects aim to understand the roles of personal/contextual resources in the recovery process and to provide effective recovery strategies at the individual level as well as corporate level.
