Bio

I am a PhD candidate in the Management and Organizations department at Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. I study how people think about other's intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation using diverse methodological approaches including surveys, lab experiments, and archival data analyses.

I am prepared to teach classes in management, organizational behavior, human resource management, work motivation, ethics and morality, and social networks. My strength as a teacher lies in my ability to understand students’ interests and to deliver highly tailored content to their unique needs and concerns. I taught a large BBA core course as a sole instructor very successfully in 2018 (4.8/5.0 rating) and 2020 (5.0/5.0 ratings), one before and one during the pandemic. The course involved both synchronous remote lectures and asynchronous pre-lecture videos. You can find an example of my pre-lecture video when you click the teaching tab.

In addition to research and teaching, I strongly value community involvement. I have reviewed for the Academy of Management Annual Meeting since 2016, and have been a member of the PhD Forum at Ross School of Business for five years where I served as the president in 2020. I served as the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Ally in 2021 and on committees on Management & Organizations Doctoral Recruiting, Brown Bag Coordination, Undergraduate Subject Pool, and Culture.
