Area of Specialization: Management


I am a doctoral student in Management (Organizational Behavior) at the University of Washington – Foster School of Business. My current research interests focus on how and why social interactions in the workplace may lead to unintended reactions. In particular, I am interested in how perceptions of the self and others formed through social behaviors (such as gossip, emotion expressions, etc.) may cause well-intended behaviors to elicit unintended consequences. My current projects include work with Dr. Michael Johnson, Dr. Christopher Barnes, Dr. Crystal Farh, and Dr. Kira Schabram. Prior to joining the doctoral program, I worked with several clients in the healthcare industry as a consultant.
