I am currently an Organizational Behavior Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Gies College of Business, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, working with Dr. Denise Lewin Loyd.
I am on the 2023-2024 academic job market.
My research falls into three themes: intergroup rivalry & competition, intergenerational lineage, and diversity & inclusion.
I take an interdisciplinary approach to examine how the past shapes present relationships and identities, with a particular focus on intergroup rivalry. I bring to my work training in social psychology and experimental methods, training in intergroup relations and physiological stress assessment methods, and training in organizational behavior and archival methods. Some of my current work is examining how organizations can use their historic rivals to maximize value creation while minimizing negative external stakeholder behavior, and how distinguishing between intergroup rivals and enemies is consequential for managing interorganizational conflict.
