Research Interests

My research focusses on two topics. First, I study employee’s passion for their work (e.g., what the consequences of passion are, how passion is perceived and expressed, how people can attain and maintain their levels of passion). Second I investigate economic inequality (e.g., how economic inequality manifests in communities and organizations, and the psychological implications of varying levels and types of economic inequality). 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.
