Ph.D., London School of Economics; M.B.A., Babson College; M.S.W., Boston University; B.A. Sociology, Boston College


I received by Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2014. My research interests are focused on the boundary conditions between work and non-work activities, as well as more recently on global leadership and cross-cultural management. Prior to coming to Emmanuel, I worked at Harvard Business School on a global, multi-method research project on leadership with senior leaders in a leading multinational technology organization. In addition to my academic research experience, I also worked in commercial research and consulting for over a decade and was involved in the design and implementation of hundreds of qualitative and quantitative research projects across a range of public and private industry sectors.

What I Love About Emmanuel

I love that students are able to engage in a diverse liberal arts curriculum within a small supportive college environment. I also love that Emmanuel offers this environment, while at the same time being located in the heart of Boston.  

Courses I Teach

I teach Introduction to Business, Leadership Person and Process, Management Internship, Organizational Behavior. In the spring I will also add Human Resources Management.
