Kristin Byron, assistant professor of management, is interested primarily in nonverbal communication and how it affects employees: emotion in the workplace; nonverbal and electronic communication; employee responses to mistreatment (e.g. revenge, forgiveness, retaliation); and the intersection of employees' work and non-work lives (e.g. work-family conflict, environmental stressors). Recently, she has been quoted as an expert in a variety of national and local media outlets; The Syracuse Post Standard, The New York Times, ABC News.com, and Time.com.
Her publication, "Toward an Understanding of Nonverbal Cues and Emotion in Email Communication," with D.B. Baldridge, was recognized in the Best Paper Proceedings in the 2005 Academy of Management Proceedings. She has been published in the Journal of Management; the Journal of Organizational Behavior; and the Academy of Management Review.
