I am interested in selective incivility from the target, perpetrator, and bystander perspectives. Specifically, how targets’ appraisal of antisocial work experiences affect their perceived compatibility between their disparate identities (e.g., African-American, women, CEO). I am also interested in the unconscious, cognitive processes that motivate perpetrators to selectively abuse gender and racial minorities in the workplace. My goals include connecting scholarship on workplace mistreatment beyond individual experiences to experiences within groups, particularly diverse workgroups composed of varying attitudes towards women, racial minorities, and acceptance of uncivil treatment.
