Dr. Rizzuto's research focuses on human capital and organizational capacity through technology-mediated processes with the goal of increasing access to the knowledge, expertise, and resources needed to manage change in the modern workplace. Applying quantitative multilevel and network modeling to describe person-environment interactions, she studies attitudinal and behavioral responses to large-scale organizational change across a wide variety of settings and technologies used to support post-secondary education and professional training. Her secondary research interests include workforce aging issues and understanding change reactions to workplace disasters.
