I am an Assistant Professor of Management & Organization at the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business.
I previously completed my BS in Psychology at Penn State, my MA in I-O Psychology & HRM at App State, and my MS/PhD in Management at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC.
In my research, I seek to understand:
1) How discrete emotions, such as awe, enter and affect our behavior in the workplace, particularly with respect to the intra- and interpersonal dynamics of emotions over time.
2) If, when, and why our impressions of others' thoughts, feelings, and behaviors toward us are (in)accurate. I focus primarily on meta-perception and accuracy within the context of communication behaviors, such as flirting and favor-asking, that commonly unfold in organizations.
3) How people manage intimacy at work.
