Biography

Dr. Carleton's research interests include two separate but often overlapping research passions, namely (1) leadership and (2) employee health and well-being. She is fascinated by leadership behaviors and what predicts high and low quality leadership, as well as the outcomes of high and low quality leadership. Her interest in employee health and well-being has lead her to investigate the non-work antecedents of employee well-being, especially different physiological and psychological predictors of well-being, such as sleep. She conducted her dissertation research on sleep, well‐being and leadership. She is a co‐editor (with Julian Barling, Christopher Barnes and David Wagner) of the book Sleep and Work: Research Insights for the Workplace (Oxford University Press, 2016).

Prior to joining the Edwards School of Business in July of 2016, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership in Ivey Business School at Western University. While there she conducted research on the validation and outcomes of leader character. She completed her PhD in Organizational Behavior at the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University under the supervision of Julian Barling. Before pursuing her PhD Dr. Carleton was a research analyst at the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region.
