Ju Li’s research interests focuses on understanding the dynamics of various team processes. She has a particular interest in examining how team processes such as conflict, control and leadership influence trust as an outcome. Using the multilevel approach, she has examined these issues both in the corporate and healthcare settings. For example, she has examined how leaders and teams build trust in the face of conflict, and how conflict affects trust in teams. Ju Li is also interested in the emergent and cross-level processes of how individual values influence and shape the team values and vice versa. Ju Li has extended her research in the area of team processes to the process by which HRM is implemented in healthcare setting. Her research in this area has helped to bridge the knowledge between HR commitment-based approach and HR control-based approach in the healthcare setting. In addition to the multilevel approach, Ju Li employs a multimethod and mixed-method (i.e. both qualitative and quantitative) approach in her research.
