Research Interests: 

I currently have two primary research interests.  The first relates to the antecedents and consequents employee engagement and burnout.  In this line, the we have been looking at employees' willingness to take leave, turnover, and job performance.  The second relates to to the antecedents and consequents of counterproductive worker behavior (CWBs).  In this line, we have been looking at how both implicit and explicit trait aggression impact malicious compliance, gossip, forgiveness, morality, sports performance and penalties, and service industry employee performance.  Lastly, my applied work is in the area of leadership assessment and development.
