Department of Communication Studies
My research involves the cognitive, physical, and emotional health and well-being of organizational members. [read more=’Read more’ less=’Read less’] I examine the intersection between work and life, stress and well-being, burnout, organizational conflict and negotiation, and workplace mistreatment including incivility and bullying. While mostly applying a qualitative/interpretive lens to the research, I also conduct quantitative analysis. Furthermore, I study members of the public safety profession (i.e. police officers and fire fighters). Specifically, I research stress and burnout over the career length. I have examined the aging, female professional and their experiences in dealing with menopause and aging in the workplace. My research appears in Communication Monographs, Communication Studies, International Journal of Business Communication, Women & Language, Qualitative Research Reports in Communication, and Negotiations and Conflict Management Research.
