Serenity S. Lee

PhD Candidate in Management (Organizational Behavior)
The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

I am a doctoral student in the Management Department (Organizational Behavior group) at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. I study how workers bring themselves to work, with a focus on the tensions that they experience to "be professional" while also valuing the non-work aspects of themselves. I use both qualitative and quantitative methods. My work has been published in Academy of Management Journal and Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, as well as for practitioners in Harvard Business Review.

Prior to my PhD studies, I was a research associate in the Organizational Behavior unit at Harvard Business School and worked as a conflict resolution facilitator. I received my BA with honors in Psychology from the University of Michigan.

In my free time, I enjoy taking art classes, taste-testing oat chai lattes at coffee shops around the city, and catering to the whims of my two cats.
