RESEARCH INTERESTS

        My primary research interests lie within the areas of individual differences, and team dynamics
        and development. More specifically, I am interested in differences in interpersonal perception and
        cognition, and the interplay between such differences and team dynamics.

TEACHING INTERESTS

        The opportunity to teach and mentor students, both inside and outside the classroom, has been the
        primary reason for my decision to pursue an academic career. My teaching interests are broad and
        include industrial/organizational psychology, leadership, team dynamics, and social psychology.
        Additional teaching interests and/or experiences include psychological assessment, research
        methods, and statistics.
