Current Research Activities

I have been trying to identify factors that prohibit or enhance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.   I have been trying to identify what strategies underrepresented minorities could use to reduce a potential bias against them.  

What contributed to your research interests?

Because I am an immigrant myself, it is important to understand how organizations and immigrants could work together to benefit each other. 

How does your research relate to current issues?

Immigrants face considerable disadvantages in the workplace,  mainly because they speak English with an accent.  I examine what strategy they could use to reduce a potential bias against them.  The identification of such strategy could lead to less bias against them.
