My research focuses on the impact of stereotypes on individuals' status within organizations, particularly the status of individuals who violate gender stereotypes. My study "Can an Angry Woman Get Ahead? Gender, Status Conferral, and Workplace Emotion Expression," published in Psychological Science, concluded that people reward men who get angry but view angry women as incompetent and unworthy of status and power in the workplace. My other research interests include the cultural origins of stereotypes (e.g., the media), corporate social responsibility, and framing messages to improve health policy.
