Recruiting new PhD students for the Fall of 2024

My overarching research mission is to improve human flourishing by conducting meaningful and transformational research. While my primary training is in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, my research approach is not confined to studying the human condition at work. I take an interdisciplinary, person-centric, future-looking approach to examining the human experience across various contexts. Specifically, my work is organized around two central themes: Well-Being and Teams. For more information about my current research projects, please visit The Foundation Lab page
