I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Darden School of Business and Center for Academic Strategic Partnerships for Interprofessional Research and Education (ASPIRE) at the University of Virginia.
I received my PhD in Psychology (Personality and Social Contexts) at the University of Michigan.
I am an interdisciplinary scholar investigating how employees, particularly from marginalized social identity groups or low status professions, survive and thrive in oppressive and or stressful work environments. I center my work within identity, diversity, physiology, and positive organizational scholarship to explore the following research questions:
(1) How does marginality generate resources for oppressed social identity groups?
(2) How are organizations designed to foster physical and psychological well-being?
I explore these questions in a variety of organizational contexts--including religious institutions and healthcare systems--and through qualitative (e.g., interpretive phenomenological analysis, grounded theory), experimental, and physiological methodologies.
