I am an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and a Non-resident Fellow at Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University. Previously, I was a 2014-2015 Lab Fellow in Institutional Corruption at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics and 2013-2014 Research Fellow in Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard University. I received a PhD in Public Policy at Harvard University in March 2015, where I was trained in organizational behavior, psychology, and behavioral economics.
My overall program of research seeks to help employees navigate modern workplace challenges by exploring ways they can proactively tap into their relationships, reinterpret negative events, and change their implicit beliefs. I employ a multitude of methodological approaches, including lab and field experiments, surveys, and interviews.
I teach BBA, MBA, and executive education courses on negotiation, leadership, and organizational behavior. My teaching reinforces a strong focus on experiential learning, and applies research in a manner that is directly useful to students. In addition to research and teaching, I appreciate and value mentoring emerging researchers and contributing to the field of management and psychology.
I hope to promote the use of scientific evidence in diagnosing and addressing critical problems in public policy and business practices. To that end, I have conducted research with governments, companies, and non-profit organizations, and have also been involved with the Behavioral Insights Group (BIG) at Harvard University, and Decision Lab at the University of Michigan.
