Research Interests

My research interests are on social class identity, chronic debt, positive organizational emotions, and animal-work interface. Specifically, I employ multi-method techniques including lab experiments, field studies, archival data analysis, and surveys to explore:
(a) The impact of social class in the workplace, especially the experience of social class transitioners
(b) The potential positive intervention that organizations, managers, and employees use to create a work environment that allows for individuals to thrive
