I use a behavioral lens to understand leadership processes and their consequences. Most notably, I examine how leaders behave and make decisions by exploring the macro-level institutional influences (e.g., formal regulations), the firm-level corporate governance antecedents (e.g., ownership structure), and the individual-level microfoundations (e.g., leaders’ dispositional features). A notable convergence of the streams concerns looking for multi-level factors that interact to shape leaders’ employment risk (e.g., increased forced turnovers) and subsequent decisions on firm competitiveness (e.g., corporate social responsibility and innovation). Focusing on worldwide firms, I have several papers published at Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, and Journal of Applied Psychology. I have worked and lived in China, Singapore, Canada, and the USA. Prior to joining PolyU, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Kansas State University.
