Academic Profile

As an Assistant Professor of Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology, I’m dedicated to improving workplace dynamics through research, teaching, and practical application. My research delves into DEI issues in the workplace, employee well-being, and research methods. I’ve published in top journals, such as Organizational Research Methods. Notably, I recently completed my Ph.D. in May 2023, and my dissertation on the effect of clothing in the workplace has been recognized with the prestigious Society of I-O Psychology award – the 2023 Benjamin Schneider Scholarship by the Macy Fund. I actively engage with the I-O psychology community, collaborating with colleagues and presenting at conferences.  In addition to my research, I am committed to delivering exceptional teaching and mentoring. My teaching philosophy revolves around fostering student engagement and critical thinking, emphasizing real-world applications to equip them for success.
