Intro Post

Hi everyone! I’m Tanya Mitropoulos (she/her), and I’m a graduate student in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. I hope to make a career for myself in research that focuses on employee recovery. I’m in Dr. Charles Calderwood’s Work Stress and Recovery lab, where I examine the workday’s impact on employee well-being in the context of commuting, teleworking, and the home after work. I also have strong interests in how an employee’s pets influence their recovery, along with a tendency to ruminate after work.

Outside of school and work, I have a wonderful husband who is also a grad student at Virginia Tech, in Mechanical Engineering. We have a precious goldendoodle named Francie, who we spoil as much as we can. We love hiking together and are very happy with our choice to spend grad school in beautiful Blacksburg!
