Area of Specialization: Management


As an OB researcher, I explore how emotion regulation and management at a micro-level influences collective social outcomes (e.g., equity & inclusion, social service outcomes). My dissertation focuses on understanding and overcoming the defensive response of dominant social group members to equity and inclusion challenges in the workplace. I also study how fluctuations in biological states influence people at work, so that organizations can be more inclusive of women and people with chronic conditions. Prior to beginning doctoral study, I worked for ten years with public, private, and non-profit social impact organizations globally - experience that inspires my current research interests. Now, I hope to generate knowledge for evidence-based practice in organizations.
