I study adversity and creativity in the workplace and the intersection of the two. I am interested in helping people seize the opportunities offered by obstacles and turn them into fuel for motivation and creativity.
For my dissertation, I use science-fiction authors' career data to answer the question “when, how, and why does failure promote employee creativity?”
