Her research has been published in international peer-reviewed journals including the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, the International Journal of Human Resource Management, Organisational Psychology Review and Accident Analysis and Prevention.

In line with her expertise in the area, she also serves on the editorial board of the International Journal of Human Resource Management.

In 2017 Sarah-Jane completed all taught and residential elements of a Professional Diploma in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Interventions. She is passionate about sharing mindfulness practice (in the form of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Programmes) with both students in her modules and employees and managers in the organisations with whom she works.
