As an organizational behavior scholar, I study the self-concept in organizations. My principal area of research investigates how the defining of the self-concept by affiliation with an organization or profession, referred to as identification, influences perceptions and behaviors. How women leaders experience gender bias as well as different workforce and organizational phenomena are also in my research lexicon.
My more recent scholarship is situated in the healthcare space, though historically I have explored similar constructs in higher education.
