Research interests:
I study how individuals and groups in organizations construct meaning around ongoing events. This includes how they allocate attention, form mental representations, and utilize metacognition to revise these representations. In doing so, I have collaborated with neuroscientists and Buddhist monks, implemented multilevel surveys in organizations, and modeled organizing processes in social movements. My goal in pursuing this line of work is to develop a practically useful, conceptually sound, and theoretically rich understanding of (meta)cognition in organizations.
