Emily Bianchi joined the Goizueta Business School in 2011. She holds a PhD in Management from Columbia University and a BA in Psychology from Harvard University. Bianchi's research investigates how people make sense of their work environments and the individuals within them. In one line of research she examines how early workforce experiences can have lasting implications for how people think about, approach, and respond to their work. In another line of research she examines how people perceive others within their organizations, and in particular how they determine whether their colleagues are fair, intrinsically motivated, generally likable, or capable leaders. Her work has been covered by The Financial Times, USA Today, Businessweek, Harvard Business Review, Yahoo!, Georgia Public Broadcasting, and others. Prior to graduate school, Bianchi was a Senior Consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton.
