Research interest(s)/area of expertise

  • Interpersonal Aggression and Discrimination- Specificaly, I study forms of interpersonal mistreatment and aggression including constructs such as incivility and bullying. I am also interested in how these forms of mistreatment manifest as forms of discrimination. 

  •  Fairness in Formal Organizational Processes- Specifically, I examine in psychometric issues such as reliability and validity in various assessments used for hiring and assessing performance quality. I also examine mental heuristics (e.g. leniency error, halo error, etc.) and stereotype related biases in processes such as personnel selection and performance appraisal.

  •  Work/Non-Work Paradigm- Specifically, I focus on the identification, reduction, and understanding of work-family conflict.


  • M.A. in Psychology (Industrial/Organizational)
  • B.A. in Psychology
