Publications & Research

All too often well-intending workers, leaders, physicians, and organizations overlook or implement measures that backfire for those they ostensibly aim to help. I study these “misguided good intentions” in the contexts of leadership and diversity while developing and testing evidence-informed solutions (e.g., individual strategies such as humor and sports; organizational strategies such as team design, parental leave policy and implementation; digital strategies and technologies). My methods include lab- and field-based experiments and field surveys (i.e., multiple sources, over time), but my recent research on the “future of work” increasingly includes archival data (e.g., social media data mining).
