Her research examines individual reputation and emotion. She studies the process of how people gain, lose, and recover their reputations, and how reputational information is stored and communicated in networks. Through a variety of settings ranging from baseball fields, sorority houses, wineries, and Japan, her work examines the content, structure, and dynamics of individual reputation. Her work on emotion centers on discrete emotions (compassion, joy, gratitude) and how people regulate their emotions and the emotions of others. She takes a multi-method approach to her research, employing both qualitative and quantitative methods in experimental laboratory and field settings. Her work has been published in leading academic journals in the fields of management and psychology.
