I am currently a Postdoctoral Teaching and Research Associate at the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame.

My research interests include ethics in groups and organizations, moral personality and character traits, and intergroup relations. A primary focus of my research investigates how moral character influences engagement in unethical behavior that benefits the organization and/or its members.

I earned my Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Theory from Carnegie Mellon University in Spring 2016.
