My principal research interests lie in the field of organizational behavior and the impact of its variables on productivity efficiency and effectiveness of an organization. I am currently working on a paper on gender aspects of managerial decision making trying to find a difference in the decision making process of successful female to those of successful male managers. My future research plans are to develop models of knowledge retention as well as examining the dynamics of different demographics and its impacts on performance. I am also very interested in researching the need for adaptation of different leadership styles in correlation to the changing demographics in the human capital of an organization. At the same time, I am fascinated by organizational change and transformation especially the effects it has on informal communication.
