Fascinated by complicated interpersonal interactions in today's dynamic workplace as well as how sparks for change emerge from them, I conduct research on how to develop, inspire, and connect people for innovative endeavors at work. My research primarily focuses on creativity, social perceptions, and workplace interactions.
