I am an Assistant Professor in Organizational Behavior at the Stockholm School of Economics. I received my PhD in Organizational Behavior from the State University of New York at Buffalo, MS in Biomedical Science from Purdue University, and BS in Biological Science from Sichuan University. Before joining SSE, I have worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Washington University’s Olin Business School.
My research has been published at The Leadership Quarterly, Journal of Organizational Behavior, and Small Group Research. My current research interests include social networks, leadership, ethics, and moral emotions. I conduct my research by collecting survey data, using experimental methods, and performing meta-analysis, and aim to answer these three broad questions:
1) How can we help individual team members effectively share leadership influence and avoid engaging power struggle within and between teams?
2) What are the dark side of feeling and expressing positive emotions in organizations?
3) What are the social functions of moral emotions in conflict management process?
In my free time, I like doing CrossFit, going for hiking and skiing, painting and playing piano.
