I investigate interpersonal processes in organizations and how these processes are influenced by aspects of people’s non-work lives spilling into the workplace. My motivation is driven both by the central importance of relationships at work, as well as by the complex nature of one’s personal life becoming known in a professional context. Through my interest in these two aspects of organizational life, I am driven to shed light on four particular questions: how is personal knowledge of colleagues acquired; how does this knowledge alter interpersonal relationships at work; what are the individual, team, and organizational consequences of these particular types of interpersonal treatment; and finally how are these processes influenced by the organizational context in which they are embedded.
