I am an Assistant Professor in Organizational Behavior at the Stockholm School of Economics. Before joining SSE, I have worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Washington University’s Olin Business School, and an Adjunct Faculty Instructor at the University at Buffalo.

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.

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.
