I am a doctoral candidate in the Industrial-Organizational Psychology program at Michigan State University. I conduct research on leadership, interpersonal processes, employee motivation, and career management. My research examines how to improve employees' work attitudes and performance through motivational synergies that arise from vertical, horizontal, and boundary-spanning social interactions in the workplace. Ultimately, my research aims to improve the work experience of individual employees in order to facilitate organizational efficiency. I also provide research advisory and consultation services to organizations that are interested in applying quantitative or qualitative research to advance evidence-based decision-making on human capital and organizational issues.
**I will commence my position as an Assistant Professor in Management at the Nanyang Business School, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in Aug 2018.
