I have an active research and writing agenda focused on the scholarship of teaching and learning, formal workplace social networks, and human capital. I have presented my own research at the Academy of Management Annual Meetings, the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conferences in the Americas, the Midwest Academy of Management Annual Meetings, International College Teaching and Learning Conference, and International Applied Business Conference.

My research has been published in the Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies, Business Research Yearbook, American Journal of Business Education, Journal of Business and Education Research, Journal of Diversity Management, Journal of College Reading and Learning, Contemporary Issues in Education Research, and Research & Teaching in Developmental Education. In 2019, I was appointed to the Academy of Management Ethics Ombuds Committee to serve as an ombudsperson.
