I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at London Business School. I received my Ph.D. in Management and Organization at the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business.

Prior to my academic career, I worked as an entrepreneur and management consultant where I helped organizations improve leadership and team effectiveness, employee engagement, and innovation processes.

My research examines how organizations and teams can foster employee proactive behaviors such as voice and creativity. I also study how groups can more effectively manage emotions at work to improve relationships and effectiveness. To date, my work has been published in Academy of Management Review and Journal of Applied Psychology.

I currently teach in the MBA program at the London Business School and co-designed the elective course Leading Teams and Organisations. Explore some of my research below.
