My research interests mainly focus on how diversity affects leadership and leadership perceptions of minority groups. I have mainly focused on how perceptions of Asian Americans affect their leadership outcomes. I am interested in studying the disparities between how Asian Americans tend to be successful academically, but fail to obtain high positions in companies compared to Caucasian Americans. I additionally want to focus on other minority groups in the workplace, such as women, and other racial groups and their leadership outcomes as well.
