The goals of my research programs are to improve the quality of individual well-being, and to build a healthy workplace and society that enhance the safety and health of workers and their families. A healthy workplace or a healthy society is one in which all constituents are able to exercise their talents and gifts to achieve high performance as well as maintain psychological and physical well-being. In order to understand how to effectively build a healthy society and a healthy organization, I have taken an interdisciplinary approach over years to explore the ways of maximizing organizational as well as societal productivity, and optimizing individual potentials to pursue healthier, more secure, and safer lives. My past field and military experience have convinced me that there will be much more efficient options available if one is open to different approaches and ideas, and utilize their strengths to solve problems.
