research overview

  • One of my research projects focuses on identifying the factors that lead to first authorship in management scholarship by analyzing a data set collected from 780 authors of top-tier management journals. A second research project focuses on theorizing the relationship between employee benefits and employee performance with a theoretical model based on organizational support theory to explain the relationship. A third research project consists of an empirical study of the pay risk acceptance level accepted by individuals for pay for performance while working on teams.
