Research Interests: Attention, Episodic, Self
My research seeks to understand the first-person experience of working, from the immediate episodic feeling of what it is like to be working to the broader autobiographical narratives that people create to provide coherence for their work lives. This includes interests in emotional states, focus of attention, episodic structures of personal experience, and sense of self and agency at work.
