About
I am a social-organizational psychologist by training, and have over 20 years of professional experience in higher education, organizational change and development, marketing, as well as diversity and inclusion in private and nonprofit sectors. As a researcher, I'm most curious about topics that intersect conflict management, diversity, equity, and inclusion at group and organizational levels. As a tertiary educator, I teach social science research designs and methods to help my students explore and address important conflict issues they care about. I also teach organizational conflict management systems to cultivate students' understanding and design of complex conflict management dynamics and processes in teams and organizations. Last but not least, I am actively involved in providing research-based advice and expertise to support organizations in advancing diversity, inclusion, and other pursuits of organizational excellence.
