Overview

Emily’s current research interests lie within the field of organizational management, in particular, on the role of the nonmarket environment in shaping corporate strategy from a social good perspective (e.g. CSR). As a doctoral candidate, she will analyze the forces influencing firms’ willingness to organize nonmarket strategies, and the extent to which these strategies prove meaningful or symbolic.

She received her B.S. in Economics from Wharton, where she concentrated in Management Strategy and minored in Fine Arts. Through her studies, Emily developed an acute interest in the incentive structures that inform firm decision-making and the willingness of institutions to align on shared value systems. Upon graduating and over the three years following, she held a corporate role in the retail industry, where she faced many of these issues head-on and which heavily informed her research pursuits thereafter. Emily has since spent the last year and a half exploring these topics as a Management RA at Wharton.
