Psychology? Research interests:

My research deals with factors that influence creativity and innovation in the workplace.  Specifically, I am interested in examining the factors that drive individuals to be creative, how teams of employees work together to develop creative solutions, and how leadership can impact innovative outcomes for organizations. My secondary interests include decision making in organizations and the role of technology in the workplace.
