Current Research / Projects

These are a few of the “working” papers, research ideas, and areas I am interested in.  Much of the work is based in my dissertation research study that focused on the relationship between emotional intelligence and work engagement.

If you have similar interests feel free to contact me if you want to collaborate on a project.  Also, if you know of research that may help in my work feel free to pass it along.
