My Research
I am a PhD student in the Management & Organizations department at the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business. I received my B.A. from Northwestern University, magna cum laude with honors in Psychology. Prior to joining Ross, I worked in non-profit organizations focused on inner city development in Chicago and conducted research in affect and physiological psychology (e.g., facial expressions and emotional coherence) in the Life-Span Development Lab at Northwestern. These experiences led me to my scholarly interest for management & organizations. My current research interests include positive organizational scholarship, exploring the psychological consequences of sex versus gender traits in leadership, examining social-emotional processes in leadership orientations (i.e., prestige and dominance) and behaviors (i.e., feedback seeking), and conducting qualitative research on organizational cultures.
