Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
Broadly, my research interests revolve around employee stress and well-being. More specifically, I am interested in work/non-work boundary management, especially the ways in which people make use of technology to navigate the demands of work and personal life. I also have some research experience in examining general employee attitudes.
I enjoy cooking and baking, and am a voracious reader. Being in the woods is where I find the most calm and peace, so I take frequent walks and rambles with my family. I'm trying to become a gardener, but lack space and, if we're honest, a bit of patience.
