Teaching and Research Interests

My research interests lie in the fields of organizational behavior and human resource management, with an emphasis on understanding how information and communication technologies impact different facets of organizational life. Specifically, I am interested in a) exploring how virtual interactions influence team processes and outcomes, b) explicating mechanisms and outcomes associated with virtual work arrangements such as telecommuting), and c) studying interpersonal processes such as self-presentation via virtual interactions.
