Research Interests

My research focuses on two main areas: Leadership and teams. Within these areas, I am interested in adopting a multilevel lens, with specific attention toward the environment or situation in which individuals and teams function. I am currently working on several projects that consider the role of implicit leadership theories, implicit followership theories, temporality, temporal leadership, team diversity, team motivation, and/or team conflict on work-related outcomes.
