I am currently an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Richard Ivey School of Business. I obtained my PhD in Organizational Behavior and Theory from The Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University. My dissertation committee was chaired by Laurie Weingart, with Denise Rousseau, Anita Woolley, and Steven Dow as committee members. Paul Goodman also played a significant role in shaping my dissertation.
Prior to starting my Phd, I had previously worked in an investment bank, founded a company that developed educational games and workshops, and worked in the prison service.
As evident from my diverse professional experiences, I am generally fascinated by people's experiences at work. Whether it is a game studio in the business of building "fun" (the setting of my dissertation), a Wall Street investment bank, or a bureaucratic public organization, there is always some aspect about these organizations and the nature of work in these organizations that has intrigued me.
My research allows me to explore my interests in diverse organizational experiences, while the classroom is an avenue for me to share these interests with students, and learn about different organizational experiences through them.
