McCluney serves as a postdoctoral fellow at both UVA’s Darden School of Business and Center for Interprofessional Education at the School of Nursing. Her research considers how marginalized employees — those lacking access, resources, status and power — successfully navigate organizational contexts so that they are not merely surviving, but thriving at work. It also investigates factors that enable marginalized employees to construct positive work identities and experience well-being. She has published in the Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings, the Journal of Vocational Behavior and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal.

Prior to coming to Darden, she worked as a research associate at Catalyst Inc. and served as an AmeriCorps volunteer.
