His research has been published in top management journals, such as the Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and the Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior.
Professor Reyt also founded Distances in Organizations, a research network focused on the relationships between distance and important work outcomes.
