As a postdoctoral scholar on the NSF ADVANCE Catalyst team at UCF, I am working on a project that examines how UCF STEM faculty perceive their departmental culture and climate, organizational fit, and faculty support initiatives. This project bridges the frameworks of organizational justice, organizational authenticity, and intersectionality, utilizing mixed methods to better understand and address the challenges faced by STEM faculty.

My other ongoing project considers how employees of a large U.S.-based technology firm make sense of diversity. Drawing on data collected via in-depth interviews, I utilize a grounded theory approach to examine how tech employees who value diversity construct the meaning of diversity generally, within the context of their work organization, and within the context of the high-tech industry.
