I am a doctoral candidate in Management (Organizational Behavior) at the Michael G. Foster School of Business. I have an MBA and a BS in journalism, both from the University of Oregon (2010 and 1998, respectively). Professionally, I have worked in IT, non-profit management, and market research.

My research is broadly centered on teams, with emphases on the relational dynamics involved in behaviors such as collaboration, emotions, and leadership. I have published in the Academy of Management Review and the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and I have work under review at Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Academy of Management Review, and Perspectives on Psychological Science.

My teaching is focused on providing an experiential space for developing current and future business leaders. I blend rigorous evidence-based research with relevant managerial examples to help students gain new insights into human behavior at work.
