Academic Department: Management & Organization

Area of Specialization: Management


I am a Doctoral Candidate in the Management and Organizations department with a focus on Organizational Behavior. My research program explores the ways in which we can humanize the workplace, with emphases on (a) self- and other-compassion to alleviate workplace suffering, (b) the grief-work interface, and (c) dimensions of employees' personal lives that are ignored by the workplace. 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.
