Dr. Ashley Fulmer joined our department in September, 2012. She received her Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Much of Ashley’s research focuses on trust in organizational settings and can include various referents such as individual, team, and organization. Some of her current projects examine how members in a team come to share their levels of trust in their leader and the consequence of this shared trust. Ashley also has ongoing research projects on negotiation that explore the influences of affect and trust, and on cross-cultural psychology, looking at group differences in attitudes, behaviors, and performance due to divergent cultural values, practices, and norms.
