I am an academic researcher and a life enthusiast.
As a PhD student in Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, my research interests focus on topics related to organisational culture, mindsets, and intergroup relations. I am particularly interested in exploring these areas in the context of change, whether reactively driven by macro-environmental forces or proactively initiated within organisations.
I have been navigating change and diversity ever since leaving my home country of Taiwan at the age of 12 and living independently across five continents. I was the youngest graduate of both the Haas School of Business’ undergraduate programme and the London Business School’s Masters in Finance programme.
Prior to starting my PhD, I have a background in financial audit at PwC in Silicon Valley, customer and employee experience management at Medallia in London, and organisational research at the Mindsets & Diversity Lab. Through my work with Fortune 500 companies, I gained first-hand experience of the knowledge gaps prevalent in modern businesses, and found that these aligned closely with my research interests.
I am also a passionate volunteer with a focus on education. My experiences include advising a musical theatre school in the UK on financial turnaround strategy, mentoring female entrepreneurs in emerging markets, and organising academic training programmes for students in preparation for higher education.
Outside of my work in academic research or volunteering, I enjoy improvising songs on my piano, exploring new cities without a map, and building my photography portfolio.
