Research Interests

My research focusses on two topics. First, I study the pursuit, perception, and experience of passion, predominantly within the work context. Second, I investigate the consequences of economic inequality within teams and communities. Overall, my research seeks to identify the psychological, behavioral, and structural levers and barriers that facilitate or inhibit people’s ability to succeed. In exploring these topics, I take an interdisciplinary approach, leveraging theory from management, social/cognitive psychology, sociology, and behavioral economics, and conduct studies in collaboration with organizations.
