Professor Nagy’s research focuses on career development over the lifespan with a special focus on late career development (workers aged 50+), diversity at work, subjective aging, new work, proactivity at the workplace, leadership and leadership development, assessment and personnel selection. Her current research program investigates how workers aged 50 and above can create successful, satisfying, and sustainable late careers with the help of job crafting and how subjective perceptions of aging influence career related behavior.

She has published in various international peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Journal of Career Assessment, and the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology and has presented her research at numerous international conferences, such as the Academy of Management Conference and the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology Conference. Professor Nagy has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in organizational behavior, leadership development, personnel assessment, career development, and statistics at the University of Bern (Switzerland), the Philipps University of Marburg (Germany), and at the Swiss Distance University.
