Research Interests

My research focuses on leadership processes at individual, team, and organizational levels of analysis. At these various levels, my research deals with singular leaders (e.g., CEOs), as well as more plural forms of leadership (e.g., shared leadership in teams). The topic of responsible leadership represents a content area of special interest to me. This interest lies at the intersection of leadership, ethics, and corporate social responsibility. In addition, I do work connecting effective leadership behavior/characteristics with neuroscience theory and methodology.
