Research

Interests


I am often interested in that meso region (somewhere between and overlapping the micro and macro) of analysis where both individual and group factors are critical to the outcome.

Since I am trained in system dynamics, my interests are piqued when attempting to discover unexpected behavior that requires some time to settle. However, I find myself generally in the basket of complexity science scholars who are interested more broadly in how to identify key insights into the frontiers of traditional research methods. In some cases, that means understanding the effects of time delays and feedback in strategy and policy decisions, but it can also mean extending beyond traditional individual or dyadic units of analysis to larger, network-connected groups, or it can mean focusing on unintended consequences, more generally.

My theoretical focus is organization studies (often referred to as organizational behavior), which means the kinds of phenomenon on which I primarily focus include team performance, management strategy and performance, negotiations, power, influence, compliance, individual personality, and emotional experiences.
