Linda Dyer studies the establishment of relationships between the owners of small firms and their employees, as well as how owner-managers interact with professional business advisors. A second stream of research is the organizational impact of demographic diversity, specifically in age, ethnicity and gender. Her research draws on diverse fields including individual cognition, learning and cognitive biases, and the interplay between emotions and cognition.
She has published articles in journals such as the Journal of Managerial Psychology, the Journal of Small Business Management, the International Journal of Small Business, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, as well as chapters in various books.
