Assistant Professor

My research primarily focuses on the dynamics of trust in a range of organizational contexts, including negotiations, teams, and leadership. Current projects examine research questions such as: What is the role of emotion in trust development? How do we build and repair trust interculturally? Where does team trust come from? What are dark sides of trust in leaders? This work is related to my other lines of research, which examine conflict management, cross-cultural and intercultural organizational psychology, and levels of analysis issues. I am currently on the editorial board of the Journal of Trust Research and the international committee of the Organizational Behavior (OB) division of Academy of Management (AOM).
