Research Interests

Nitya's research broadly focuses on self-regulation at work and home. Specifically, her work examines both the factors that enhance or detract from self-regulation (e.g., feedback, recovery experiences, guilt) and the processes and behaviors (e.g., motivation; prosocial behaviors; counterproductive work behaviors) that unfold after (un)successful self-regulatory efforts. She approaches these topics from a multi-level perspective, examining both intra-individual and team-level processes
