I am interested organizational commitment, the role of emotions in the workplace, and various factors that influence the replicability of studies.
Individuals choose to remain at organizations for a variety of reasons. Those reasons include identification and emotional attachment (affective commitment), perceived obligation (normative commitment), and perceived costs of leaving (continuance commitment) (Meyer & Allen, 1990). Currently, I am collaborating with others to investigate how commitment levels and relations vary cross-culturally.
Emotions in the Workplace.
Emotions are a key factor governing how individuals behave at both work and home. I am particularly interested in how various models of affect create different predictions for workplace behaviours.
Replicability of Studies.
Psychology is currently experiencing what some have called a 'crisis of confidence' due to the problems associated with replicating findings. I am interested in exploring the methodological factors that influence this issue.
