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.
