Advisor Dr. Susan J. Simkins (formerly Mohammed)

Research Interests

My research interests include group dynamics and team cognition, particularly team mental models and temporality. I am also specifically interested in how temporal individual differences influence perceptions of deadlines and how they impact team processes and outcomes.
