Hi ! Welcome to my home page.

I'm the Robert A. and Evelyn J. Ferris Chair and a professor of Organizational Studies in the Carroll School of Management at Boston College. I'm also a member of the Religious of the Sacred Heart, an international women's Roman Catholic religious order. On the Myers-Briggs I'm an INFJ. On the enneagram I'm a six. Now you know everything relevant.



My primary substantive research interests focus on organizational change and transformation, with related interests in social cognition, affect, and conflict.  My primary methodological research interests concern insider-outsider research collaborations.


Some representative publications that indicate both my substantive and methodological interests.


You can also print out a copy of my vita.
