Research Interests

My research takes a dyadic perspective on interpersonal perception of work behaviors. Specifically, I evaluate factors (e.g., personality and attachment styles) that influence dyadic perceptions of work behavior, including counterproductive work behavior (CWB), organizational citizenship behavior (OCB), and task performance.

Dr. Rangel will be recruiting a graduate student for Fall 2020 admission to the Experimental Psychology PhD Program.
