About Andrea

I am a Doctoral Candidate in Management & Organizations at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

My research centers around three key questions:

•    How and why do social contexts shape diverse people’s outcomes in key domains, such as workplaces and schools?
•    How can we restructure these contexts to help ensure that disadvantaged groups thrive?
•    How can we harness the unique skills and strengths of people from diverse contexts in these key domains?

I employ multi-method techniques in my research including field studies, lab experiments, surveys, archival data analysis, text analysis, and interviews. My research has been published in journals including Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Current Directions in Psychological Science, and Current Opinion in Psychology, and has been featured in the Harvard Business Review and the Christian Science Monitor. I also write for the Behavioral Scientist.

When I’m not researching or writing, I enjoy training for road races, traveling, and struggling through the Saturday NYTimes crossword puzzle.
