Kat is interested in the intersections of work, power, and identity. Her current research on bullying in the workplace is driven by the desire to inform solutions to the complex problems arising out of everyday processes of meaning-negotiation and dialectical relations of control and resistance in organizations. She draws primarily on ethnographic and qualitative research methods, situated in critical and interpretive perspectives, in order to gain holistic understandings of how macro, meso, and micro-level discourses influence employee identity formation, decision-making, and organizing practices.
