I am a Ph.D. student in the Management Department, focusing on organizational behavior, at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests include impression management, accountability, and motivation. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009, and worked for a consulting firm in Washington, D.C. prior to entering the doctoral program in 2011.
I am currently the TA for the MBA elective MGMT 892 - Decision Making in the Leadership Chair, taught by William P. Lauder. In the past, I have also been a TA for MGMT 610 at the MBA level and MGMT 101 and 291 at the undergraduate level.
MGMT101 - Introduction To Management
This course is an introduction to the critical management skills involved in planning, structuring, controlling and leading an organization. It provides a framework for understanding issues involved in both managing and being managed, and it will help you to be a more effective contributor to organizations that you join. We develop a "systems" view of organizations, which means that we examine organizations as part of a context, including but not limited to environment, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people and outputs. We consider how managerial decisions made in any one of these domains affect decisions in each of the others.
