Related Research Interests

My research interests mostly revolve around understanding how people at work learn, create, innovate, change, lead and relate to shape cultures. Along these lines, I came to work on the topics of organizational learning, implementing individual creative ideas into innovations, knowledge hiding, and social networks. My methodological approach is mostly quantitative and a multilevel one that spans from individuals, to dyads, teams and intra-organizational (networks). In addition to understanding these phenomena at work, I am also curious to know what are possible interventions that can help organizations improve relationships at work.
