Related Research Interests
My primary research area is psychological attachment and relationship formation and as such I am particularly interested in theories of identity, social exchange, and motivation. I enjoy studying distributed, virtual, on-demand, and other non-traditional work contexts. My research has appeared in Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Academy of Management Annals, Organization Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Academy of Management Discoveries, and other outlets.
