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.  

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.
