Research Interests:

In my research, I investigate experiences and expressions of emotions in workplaces—gratitude, hope, compassion, and awe—and the consequences (both positive and negative) of emotions on individual, dyadic, and organizational outcomes (e.g., organizational culture, sense of community). I am interested in how employees regulate their own emotions at work, as well as the emotions of others. This research builds on my prior academic and work experience as a licensed psychotherapist, with training that provides unique insights into emotions at work. I also study individual reputation, the topic of my dissertation work, which examines how people gain, lose, and recover or repair their reputations, and how reputational information is stored and communicated in networks. My research utilizes an array of methods, employing both quantitative and qualitative methods in experimental laboratory and field settings.

K – Corp is a two – party integrative negotiation exercise that takes place following a favorable annual review between a manager and one of their top performing employees. This exercise introduces the notion of creating a personal weighted scoring system to reflect the negotiator’s personal preferences. This negotiation also introduces non – traditional negotiation issues aside from compensation, such as negotiating work – family and role issues.
