Curriculum vitae

Yu Tse Heng

Ph.D. Student

Academic Department: Management & Organization

Area of Specialization: Management


I am a doctoral student in the Management and Organizations department with a focus on Organizational Behavior. Prior to joining the doctoral program at the Foster School of Business, I worked as the lab manager of the Industrial-Organizational Psychology Lab at the National University of Singapore.


B.Soc.Sc, National University of Singapore (2015)

Research Interests

My research falls under two main domains: (1) tackling societal concerns and (2) positive organizational scholarship (POS). In the first domain, I examine the relationship between important societal concerns in today’s world and the organization. For instance, I am interested in the effects of marijuana on work outcomes, the sleeplessness epidemic, workplace sexual harassment, and workplace diversity. In the second domain, I explore the role of self-compassion, compassion, and forgiveness in organizational contexts.
