I am a doctoral candidate in Management from Stern School of Business, New York University. My research focuses on the micro-foundations of groups and teams, with a particular focus on organizational structures, social networks, and intra-group processes. Specifically, I examine how individuals’ perceptions of hierarchy affect their performance outcomes, behaviors, and decision-making at work, as well as the group-level consequences and cultural variations of hierarchy perceptions. I am also interested in various antecedents of conflict and competition in group processes. In carrying out my research, I employ a variety of methods, including field, laboratory, and archival studies.
My work has been published in, or is undergoing revision at, prominent journals in the disciplines of management (Organization Science, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Academy of Management Annals, Research in Organizational Behavior), psychology (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Psychological Science), and sociology (Social Science Research, Social Psychology Quarterly).
Prior to Stern, I received double Bachelor degrees in Economics and Sociology from Peking University and a Master degree in Sociology from University of California, Berkeley.
