Research Areas of Interest: I am interested in understanding how employees make proactive and adaptive changes to the workplace from motivational, longitudinal, and multilevel perspectives and how employee-initiated changes are related to individual well-being and performance outcomes. I am also interested in how research participants’ insufficient effort responding (IER) in survey threatens data quality and conclusion validity.
