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) at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. I study how workers bring themselves to work, with a focus on the tensions that they experience regarding what it means to "be professional" while also valuing the non-work aspects of themselves. I use both qualitative and quantitative methods.

Prior to my PhD studies, I was a research associate in the Organizational Behavior unit at Harvard Business School, and earned 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 cat, Pretzel.
