Dr. Carleton's research interests include:

  1. Leadership
  2. Employee health and well-being
  3. Gender
She is fascinated by leadership behaviors and what predicts high and low quality leadership. She is also interested in women and leadership and the barriers women face to obtaining and maintaining leadership positions. She has received a number of federal and university grants to research women in leadership. Her interest in employee well-being has led her to investigate the non-work antecedents of well-being, especially different physiological and psychological predictors, such as sleep.
