EDUCATION: I have a Ph.D. in Business Administration from Florida State University, a M.S. in Managerial Science from Georgia State University, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Auburn University. 

RESEARCH: I explore topics related to social influence in organizations, most often through the lenses of organizational politics, leadership, or the intersection of the two. My work has been published in a number of different outlets. More details are available under the "research" section of this site.  

TEACHING: I currently teach organizational behavior and negotiation to undergraduates and managerial coaching to graduate students in Northeastern University's D'Amore-McKim School of Business. In the past, I have taught undergraduate courses on organizational behavior and leadership at Florida State University.  

EXPERIENCE: Prior to my academic career, I spent nine years with a consulting engineering firm with more than 50 offices across the United States. During that time, I served in a variety of project, office, regional, and firm-wide management roles.
