My research focuses on interpersonal relations, particularly in organizations. Specifically, I study three topics: (1) How people can develop healthy patterns of cooperation; (2) How the negative impact of racial and gender stereotyping can be mitigated; and (3) Why certain individuals tend to emerge as leaders and assume positions of power.
