Research Interests:

  • Social networks and relationships in the workplace
  • Deviant behavior in the workplace (e.g., counterproductive work behavior, withdrawal, organizational citizenship behavior, creativity)
  • High-risk occupations (e.g., nursing, military, law enforcement)
  • Underrepresented groups in the workplace (e.g., gender minorities, racial minorities)

My current research focuses on understanding the social networks and relationships of individuals and organizations that influence, and are influenced by, employee attitudes, emotions, health, and behavior.  Specifically, I am most interested in examining how one's social network at work and home influences employees' perceptions of support and inclusion, and how those perceptions then influence their behavior (good and bad). This area of research evolved out of my broader interest in examining when and why employees engage in negative workplace behaviors (i.e., CWB/withdrawal).  In tandem, I also conduct research on high-risk occupations (e.g., nursing, law  enforcement, military) examining how employees are impacted by the dangers and culture associated with their jobs, especially  non-traditional employees within such occupations (e.g., sex, racial,  and sexual orientation minorities). Further, I am interested in examining how we can increase selection, retention, and promotion of such non-traditional employees in these occupations.
