Research Focuses

My research focuses on using resources at the organizational-, positional-, and individual-levels to identify the sources of workplace stress, as well as prevent and attenuate the negative consequences of workplace stress. At the organizational level, I examine various aspects of organizational climate (e.g., justice, trust, and safety) as well as social context (e.g., leadership) that shape employee perceptions, attitudes, and performance. At the positional level, I explore the pros and cons of being an organizational “lynchpin,” i.e., someone employed in a mission-critical position within the company. At the individual level, I explore the stress-buffering function of writing, including writing in the laboratory setting and in daily life (e.g., micro-blogging). In doing so, I employ advanced methodology such as structural equation modeling and multilevel modeling, as well as multiple methodologies such as archival data, quasi-experiments, and open-ended questions, to provide more valid results.
