Research Interest

I am particularly fascinated by the overarching question of "how can workplace interactions be improved?" My scholarly approach toward employees’ interactions is twofold: a) tensions that are associated with the structure of interactions through which ideas or information is exchanged among individuals; and b) tensions that stem from the content of interactions, such as those trying to change the status quo.
