I am a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Washington University’s Olin Business School.
I received my PhD in Organizational Behavior (OB) from University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, MS in Biomedical Science from Purdue University, and BS in Biological Science from Sichuan University. Before pursing my PhD in OB, I have studied and worked in biomedical research for about ten years.
My current research focuses on social networks, leadership, creativity, and moral emotions. Specifically, I am interested in understanding various organizational phenomena from a relational perspective, utilizing social network theory and analysis, and driven to answer these questions: how does shared leadership emerge and develop in organizational teams; how can we promote individual and team creativity in organizations; and what are the functions of moral emotions in relationship development and conflict management.
