My current research interests span two areas:

Network Learning
Accurately learning a pattern of interpersonal relations is often critical to predicting future behavior and acting appropriately in important social contexts, such as creating a high-functioning team for a project, inviting the right people to a meeting, or finding critical allies in an organization. I am interested in how people learn various types of social networks and why some people are more accurate than others in their perceptions of social network relations.

Time and Pace in Organizations
Individuals constantly engage in social interactions possessing temporal goals that dictate how quickly or slowly they want to proceed. I am interested in how differences in these temporal goals across individuals affect the process and outcomes of various social interactions. My research in this area explores topics such as work pace and social motivation, synchronization, and temporal planning in dyadic, group and organizational contexts.
