My work objective is to help individuals and organizations understand the strengths of a diverse workforce. I encourage organizations to consider bicultural and multicultural individuals as a resource and an opportunity.
My current research examines how bicultural and multicultural employees contribute to global teams and organizations. This research can help organizations design policies and practices that leverage the often unrecognized resources available among multicultural employees. My research has been published in Academy of Management Review, Journal of International Business Studies, Human Resource Management Review, Organization Studies, and Organizational Dynamics. I received the 2016 Emerging Scholar award from the Women in the Academy of International Business, and the International Human Resources Scholarly Research award from the Academy of Management, for most significant contribution to international human resources management in 2013.
