RESEARCH INTERESTS

 

Broadly, I am interested in studying the mechanisms by which gender inequality in organizations is produced and reproduced. I examine this research question primarily by investigating gender stereotypes and how they impact women's and men's workplace outcomes. 

Most of the projects I am currently working on fall into one of the categories below:

  • Gender and leadership/entrepreneurship:

    • Women's leadership aspirations

    • Benevolent sexism 

    • Intrasexual conflict; stereotypes about women's same-sex conflict

    • Gender and stress

    • Gender and entrepreneurial success

    • Fragile masculinity

  • Social sexual behavior at work:

    • Outcomes for women and men of enjoyed social sexual behavior

  • Attractiveness biases:

    • Gender, attractiveness, and workplace outcomes
