Areas of InterestOrganizational Behavior

Dr. Colleen Stuart's research broadly focuses on collaborative work, and in particular how it is accomplished in conditions characterized by uncertainty. Much of her research focuses on the strategies and tools that collaborators use to manage change while organizing their interdependent work, such as collocation and technology. A second line of research investigates women and work, where Dr. Stuart investigates how women overcome barriers in the workplace to achieve success, and the subsequent implications of this success. The common thread between these two areas tends to be the structure of interdependent relationships – how they foster resiliency in teams and further women’s career opportunities.
