I am a doctoral candidate in the Industrial-Organizational Psychology program at Michigan State University. I conduct research on leadership, interpersonal processes, employee motivation, and career management. I am interested in examining how to improve employees' work attitudes and performance through motivational synergies that arise from vertical, horizontal, and boundary-spanning social interactions in the workplace. Ultimately, my research aims to improve the work experience of individual employees in order to facilitate organizational efficiency. I also provide research advisory and consultation services to organizations that are interested in applying state-of-the-art quantitative or qualitative research to advance evidence-based decision-making on human capital and organizational issues.
