Our lab examines issues of well-being and fairness at work. Recent topics include: psychosocial risk factors associated with work reintegration of acutely and chronically ill individuals, differential perceptions of female versus male leaders providing negative feedback, the role of occupational social identity in fostering well-being in high-stress occupations, and developing measures of stigma among health care practitioners. We use lab and field methodologies to collect both quantitative and qualitative data. Recent methodologies include randomized control experiments, longitudinal surveys (including survey development), and one-on-one, semi-structured interviews.
