Undergraduate Institution: Boston College
My research interests are broad, but I am predominantly interested in the integration of Positive and I-O Psychology, leadership, and diversity. My Master’s thesis (in-progress) explores evaluations of transgender leaders and how those differ based on the leader’s performed/expressed gender and gendered leadership behaviors. I am also currently working with a team on developing a novel eye-tracking methodology for identifying approach and avoidance motivational tendencies. I plan to continue examining possible applications of the eye tracker to I-O, in addition to continuing my study of leadership and diverse leaders. I hope to broaden my research experiences to include more solidly ‘I’ side topics, as well as areas related to worker well-being.
