I graduated from George Mason University in May 2013 with my Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology after completing my undergraduate work in 2008 at the University of Virginia. My teaching experience includes Psychology of Gender (Psychology 362) and TAing graduate-level and undergraduate-level research methods and statistics courses including Advanced Statistics (Psychology 611 and Psychology 612) and Regression (Psychology 754). I will be teaching Survey of Industrial Psychology (Psychology 636) and Psychology of Gender (Psychology 362) this fall as well as Organizational Diversity (Psychology 592/461), Multivariate Statistics (Psychology 756), and Training (Psychology 638) in the spring of 2014.


The primary goal of my program of research is to equip employees and their organizations with effective strategies for improving the experiences of socially disadvantaged individuals at work. Because seemingly trivial instances of disadvantage can create substantial inequity over time in the workplace, it represents a ripe context in which to study manifestations of disadvantage. Specifically, my research seeks to 1) describe manifestations of social disadvantage with an emphasis on understudied populations, 2) generate effective coping strategies targets can use to improve their experiences at work, and 3) offer guidance to organizations striving to achieve effective diversity management.
