Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at ESSEC Business School, Paris, France. My research focuses on the psychological antecedents and consequences of network structures.
In one stream, I explore the psychological consequences of structural dynamics. For example, I examine psychological costs of occupying structurally advantageous network positions. In another stream, I focus on how individuals’ cognitive, affective, and motivational processes form and mobilize networks in organizations—e.g., building or maintaining social relationships, seeking help from others. I use various methods, including experiments, surveys, longitudinal field study, and social network analysis.
I received a PhD in Management from UCL School of Management, University College London. Prior to my PhD, I studied Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (B.A.) and Cognitive Studies at Columbia University (M.A.).
