In my research, I strive to triangulate on how and why workplace inequality emerges, with a specific focus on gender, and to identify what can be done to help close these inequities.
One stream of my research focuses on how organizational, network, and market processes directly perpetuate gender differences. For example, I have shown how the structure of evaluative processes and network dynamics lead to different outcomes for men and women.
In a second research stream, I study the ways men and women respond differently to the same situation or information. In this work, I have demonstrated how men and women differ in the types of employers they prefer when seeking a job.
Across my papers, I use a wide range of methods and empirical approaches based on what is most appropriate for addressing the focal research question. While I primarily leverage field data from a diverse set of contexts and industries, I have also conducted both field and laboratory experiments, interviews, and content analyses.
