I am Tom Cox: I am an organizational psychologist of some experience broadly specialising in occupational health issues relating to work, health and the sustainability of working life. I was awarded the CBE in 2000 for my contribution to occupational health. This award was largely related to my role in the development of the Management Standards approach to work-related stress and psychosocial risks to employee health. One of my current concerns is cancer survivorship and work participation.
I hold Chairs at three universities. My primary affiliation is with Birkbeck University of London where I hold the Chair of Occupational Health Psychology & Management and am Director of the Centre for Sustainable Working Life (CSWL) in the School of Business, Economics & Informatics. I am also heavily involved in the METIS Collaboration as its Co Director. METIS is hosted at the University of Aberdeen by the Academic Urology Unit in the Institute of Applied Health Sciences, School of Medicine & Dentistry. I hold an Honorary Chair in Psychosocial Oncology at that University. Last, but not least, I have an Emeritus Chair in Organizational Psychology at the University of Nottingham in the Division of Psychiatry & Applied Psychology, School of Medicine.
Hopefully, I am a productive researcher. I have had about 10,700 citations of my more substantive publications (so far) with a h-index of 50 and an i10-index of 143 (Google Scholar). Since the beginnings of my partial retirement in 2010, I have managed an h-index of 36 and an i10-index of 85 (Google Scholar).
This is my personal and work blog. The Blog shares news of my current research, my professional activities, some of my other interests – outside of sport – and my travels.
