I am currently an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at Washington University’s Olin Business School, where I investigate interpersonal processes in organizations and how these processes are influenced by aspects of people’s non-work lives spilling into the workplace. I am motivated both by the central importance of relationships at work, as well as by the complex nature of one’s personal life becoming known in a professional context. Through my interest in these two aspects of organizational life, I am driven to shed light on four particular questions: how is personal knowledge of colleagues acquired; how does this knowledge alter interpersonal relationships at work; what are the individual, team, and organizational consequences of these particular types of interpersonal treatment; and finally how are these processes influenced by the organizational context in which they are embedded.
