I study organizational communication from the perspective of communication as constitutive of the social world. Within this view, we can understand concepts such as team effectiveness or organizational sustainability and CSR as manifest primarily in and through communication rules, rituals, and practices. I have worked independently and with international research teams using qualitative and quantitative methods to better understand how communication is consequential for a range of outcomes of global teams and organizational stakeholders' quality of life. My expertise is in qualitative methods such as interviews, observation, ethnography, and textual and discourse analysis. I have conducted field research and lived in Mozambique, Russia, the U.S., Australia, Jamaica, Brazil, and Germany.
