Research Interests:

My research primarily focuses on team processes and performance in the context of team diversity and leadership. I am particularly interested in how interindividual differences shape social interactions at the workplace, and how these translate into performance and health-related outcomes. I am also interested in the effects of leadership on these processes. In my research, I focus especially on the consequences of faultlines, i.e., hypothetical dividing lines that split a group into relatively homogeneous subgroups. Together with my colleague Andreas Glenz, I have also authored a software package for faultline detection and calculation, which is available here.
