I am a doctoral student in organization studies at Boston College’s Carroll School of Management. My work examines the tensions individuals face when enacting their individual or collective values at work, as well as the social processes by which they manage or overcome these tensions. I draw upon a wide variety of theoretical perspectives in my research, including research on occupations, trust, moralization, emotions, and meaningful work. I study these tensions and processes using ethnographic and other qualitative research methodologies.

Before starting doctoral studies in 2018, I taught as an adjunct professor of organizational psychology and worked in human resources management as a recruitment manager and project specialist. I hold a Master of Arts degree in leadership studies and a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication studies with an emphasis on interpersonal and organizational communication from Azusa Pacific University.
