Research Interests:

General research interests focus on the interaction between work and family roles, gender influences on work and life experiences, and social perception in work situations. Two current research projects include:

  1. Work-Family Experiences Project:  This research examines a variety of factors and variables relating to working parenthood.  I am examining how personality, childcare, organizational practices, and job variables relate to parents’ psychological well-being, separation anxiety, stress, and handling of the parent/employee role conflict.
  2. Weight Discrimination and Employee Selection: The effects of obesity, personality, and job characteristics are being examined to determine how these impact evaluations of job applicants and hiring decisions.
  3. Power and Interpersonal Behavior: This research investigates the effects of having decision-making power and control on how people interact with others, including the extent to which people are able to read and respond to interpersonal social cues.
