My research interests center around motivation and the self-regulation of work-related behavior. Specifically, I am interested in the way peoples’ self-views influence motivation and behavior related to work. My research primarily involves the experience of impostor phenomenon and the ways in which impostor phenomenon influences people’s approach to work, choice of performance strategies, and psychological experiences regarding work. Additionally, I am interested in the use of psychological assessments at work and the test-taker experience as well as work-family issues.
