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 modelling and multilevel modelling).

Jakob's research has attracted internal and external funding (e.g., ESRC) and he is a regularly invited speaker at academic institutions, businesses, and governmental bodies.


Jakob teaches on a range of programmes as well as coordinates doctoral education courses as part of the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI). Examples include coordination of Leadership: Mobilizing People (BSc) or the PhD-level Specialization Seminars in Organizational Behavior/Human Resource Management. He engages in PhD supervision and is open to discussing ideas of prospective PhD students on topics that fall within his areas of expertise.
