Kelsey L. Merlo, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Industrial-Organizational Psychology program at the University of South Florida. Her research captures the day-to-day psychological experience of working as it unfolds in the moment and across time. In particular, she explores the influence of emotions on worker functioning in the moment, the accumulation of emotional experiences to the end of the day, and the reflection over emotional events in the form of self-defining memories. Her research has been published in peer-reviewed outlets (e.g., Journal of Business and Psychology, European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology) and featured in popular press outlets like Psychology Today.
