I am currently completing my PhD in Management & Organizations at the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business, where I study how individuals and teams can more effectively learn, develop and perform in knowledge-rich work contexts. Feel free to click the links above to learn more about my work, or to download my complete CV.
- My research on vicarious learning was featured in a research profile video by the UM Center for Positive Organizations.
- I had a short article recently featured in Inc. Magazine on how organizations can support learning from failures.
- My research with Francesca Gino & Brad Staats on learning from failure was recently covered by Harvard Business Review & the Huffington Post
- The Oxford Handbook of Leadership and Organizations was recently released, featuring a chapter by Scott DeRue and I on Leadership Development.
My research and teaching interests lie in the area of management and organizational behavior, examining how individuals, dyads, and groups learn and perform in modern organizations. Through my work I explore the ways people can better learn from both their own and others’ experiences to succeed in today’s knowledge-intensive work environment. I am especially interested in understanding how these learning processes impact healthcare organizations, with a focus on medical transport teams (such as pre-hospital, ambulance and air-medical teams).
I have been honored to have my work published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, Industrial & Organizational Psychology, the Oxford Handbook of Leadership & Organizations, and the Academy of Management Proceedings. My work has also been recognized with various awards, including the Academy of Management (OB Division) Making Connections Award, and has appeared in the popular media, including The Boston Globe, Business Insider, Fortune, Harvard Business Review, and Inc. Magazine.
