Research Interest:

  • As an Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychologist, I am interested in how we can apply psychological theories and concepts to the workplace.  The goal of I-O Psychology is to help people perform better at their jobs as well as to help people enjoy their jobs more.  My specific research interests include LGBT workplace experiences, leadership, perceptions of hiring situations, and training/learning.
