The primary focus of my research is on interpersonal dynamics in the workplace and how interpersonal relationships influence well-being and performance. I often examine, in particular, the roles of personality and gender in shaping interpersonal relationships between coworkers and between leaders and followers. Among my ongoing research projects, I am examining how transitioning to a virtual work environment affects team member relationships, how leaders perceive and respond to employee voice (speaking up), and how unintentional norm violations by newcomers affect their adjustment to their new organization. Prior to embarking on my academic career, I spent ten years as a fundraising and management consultant to nonprofit organizations and social enterprises.
