He received a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from Harvard Business School and B.S. from The Wharton School. His research focuses on work communication and employee productivity. His current projects on managerial communication involve examining the most effective ways to frame incentives and work tasks to increase employee productivity and satisfaction. He is also studying the factors that drive employees to challenge the status quo in their organizations, and how they can best communicate their ideas persuasively to resistant superiors.
