I am an organizational behavior researcher, and currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Carnegie Mellon University Tepper School of Business. My research explores positive and negative interpersonal communication behaviors, and factors which may modify their impact on individuals and groups in organizations. More specifically, my research focuses on the consequences of various forms of workplace mistreatment (e.g., incivility, micro-aggressions, and discrimination), resilience at both the individual and team level (exploring why certain individuals and teams are more or less impacted by adversity, and enhancing positive adaptability to challenges at work), and the characteristics of and barriers to honesty in the workplace.
My work has been published in Management journals such as Journal of Applied Psychology, and in Medical journals such as Pediatrics and Diagnosis.
Prior to starting my Ph.D., I worked as an organizational consultant for two years in Israel serving clients in the high-tech, healthcare, auto and financial industries.
