Research Interests 

I am interested in research in three areas of organizational behavior: workplace deviance, impression management, and leadership. My research on workplace deviance is aimed at deepening our understanding of how we think about deviant behavior. Rather than only looking at counterproductive work behavior that is active in nature, my research aims to understand the nature of passive forms of workplace deviance that are characterized by withholding effort. My other topic of interest is seeking to understand the positive and negative consequences of leader impression management behaviors. My research on this question seeks to understand what types of behaviors leaders engage in to either be selected or accepted as a leader and the consequences of those behaviors.
