Current work focuses on cultural differences and similarities in people’s approach to workplace collaboration, conflict and negotiation with an interest in the role of social emotional attunement. A second stream of research examines the antecedents to creativity and innovation. In addition, I conduct studies on how leaders and team members construe the emotional distribution of collectives (i.e., emotional aperture) and the consequences for various errors one can make in reading these distributions. Finally, I have a stream of research on the dynamics of diversity and intergroup dynamics which integrates prior thinking about group dynamics with recent advances in cultural psychology.
