Related Research Interests

My core research interests are centered around the fundamental challenge of rehumanizing work and work relationships. I explore how workers can experience authentic and meaningful connection with their work, their coworkers, and with themselves. To explore how such connections are formed, experienced, and shaped by the social context calls for qualitative investigation. My interests have taken me up close and personal with real-life social behavior in fascinating contexts, including hospital ICUs, coworking spaces, sports teams, theatre casts, ballet companies, stunt performers, police departments, and historical sites. In true inductive fashion, these studies have taken me into various and often unexpected theoretical domains, such as roles and authenticity, routines and play, competition and high quality connections, perfectionism and self-compassion.
