My research is broadly in the field of management and organizational behavior, studying how individuals act and interact in work organizations. More specifically, I am interested in questions at the intersection of three domains of organizational research: (1) Individual Learning, Development, and Growth at Work, (2) Workplace Interactions and Interpersonal Dynamics, and (3) Leading Highly Reliable Health Care Organizations.

Integrating these three domains, my research investigates dyadic and social mechanisms of learning at work to understand how individuals learn and develop from their own and others’ experiences at work, with a particular emphasis on learning in health care organizations and other knowledge-intensive work environments. My work makes use of a range of quantitative and qualitative methods and data sources, and has been published in leading academic journals in the fields of management and medicine, as well as in practice-oriented publications and articles for healthcare leaders.

My teaching focuses broadly on topics of leadership and management in modern organizations, combining research-driven lessons with experiential challenges and real-world case studies to create an engaging session that prepares people to be more effective leaders in their workplace.

At the Carey Business School, my teaching spans traditional MBA classroom settings, outdoor experiential learning courses, and Executive Education seminars, where I teach several open-enrollment courses for practicing leaders and managers. Through Executive Education, I also conduct customized executive education programs with individuals and organizations from a variety of industries and global settings.

In addition to my formal teaching, I also deliver research presentations, lectures, and seminars on topics regarding learning, leadership, and healthcare management. I have spoken to and worked with organizations and leaders from a variety of backgrounds and countries, including local and national government agencies, as well as academic medical centers and emergency services teams.
