My research interests focus primarily on moods, emotions, teams, and leadership. My ongoing research on moods and emotions focuses on emotional regulation, shedding light on the subtle choices individuals make in managing their emotions during professional encounters. In the realm of teams and leadership, I examine the nuanced responses of leaders to dysfunctional team behaviors, such as intragroup conflicts. Equally, I've delved into how teams counter ineffectual leadership. Lately, I've embarked on an exploration of unconventional means by which individuals navigate work-related stress such as the potency of faith-based beliefs, the therapeutic nature of humor, and the subtle art of navigating tedious relationships.
