At Columbia Business School, I am the Barbara and Meyer Feldberg Associate Professor of Business at Columbia Business School, a faculty affiliate of the Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics, and a member of the Academic Advisory Council for the Columbia Law School’s Center for Gender and Sexuality Law ERA Project.
I received my PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sloan School of Management in 2015 and my BA in Mathematics from Providence College in 2003. Prior to entering my PhD program, I worked in defined benefits consulting and risk management at Fidelity Investments.
As an economic and organizational sociologist, I focus on understanding the drivers of workplace gender inequality. My goal is to move past simply identifying that gender differences exist, by developing a more comprehensive understanding of the precise levers that exacerbate or reduce these differences. My research has been published in top peer-reviewed journals including Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, and Organization Science and has been featured in leading media outlets including the Harvard Business Review and Wall Street Journal. At Columbia, I teach the MBA elective course on Power, Influence, and Networks and several PhD seminars on Organizational Theory.
I live in NYC with my husband Joe, our two children, and our dog Compass.
