I am a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Sloan School of Managment. 

The majority of my research is driven by a seemingly simple question: "How can we reduce unethical behavior in organizations?" I study human judgment with a particular interest in forecasting unethical behaviors at both the individual and organization level. My other research streams aim to answer the question: "How can we make groups smarter?" I study how teams manage conflicts and perform diverse tasks. 

The three research streams that I am currently working on are stereotyping and discrimination in employ selection, unethical behaviors, and conflict and cooperation in teams and larger groups. 

My doctoral dissertation focuses on identifying individuals who are most likely to engage in unethical behaviors (e.g., cheating or stealing), especially in contexts, such as job interview settings, where we need to evaluate people’s antisocial tendencies despite their motivations to convey good impressions.

Prior to starting my doctoral work, I completed two Master’s degrees: one in Statistics and a second one in Quantitative Methods, Measurement and Evaluation. I am also interested in using my quantitative research skills to develop psychometric and statistical tools for behavioral researchers.
