My research interests focus on leadership, emotions in the workplace, and ethical decision-making. With respect to leadership, my research has addressed issues such as how emotions and emotion processes influence the attitudes and performance of leaders and their followers, what skills contribute to leader performance over time, and how can case-based training be structured to effectively develop leaders. I have also been interested in ethical decision-making in organizations, particularly how to assess and train research ethics in various scientific domains. Some of my recent research has also examined the relationship of emotion and communication strategies to attitudes within ideologically-driven discussions on the internet. Most of my research integrates both novel and tried-and-true approaches to assessing individual differences. I am a founding faculty member of the Center for Applied Social Research (CASR) and I currently serve on CASR’s governing board and executive committee.
