I am a Professor of Organization & Strategy at the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis
My research focuses on how the same economic and psychological mechanisms that impact employee productivity also influence ethics and misconduct. The dilemma for firms is how to design organizational policies that increase productivity without accelerating the unethical behavior that often accompanies it.
My work also emphasizes the broader social welfare implications of misconduct, trauma, and public policy. As Associate Dean for the Olin-Brookings Partnership and a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at The Brookings Institution, I am dedicated to the positive impact of public service leadership both for society and the business environment.
I am currently Department Editor for Organizations at Management Science and Managing Editor for the OBHDP special issue on field evidence in misconduct. I publish widely in the fields of Strategy, Operations, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Finance, Economics, Psychology, Ethics, and Political Science.
