About me

Hi, I’m Joyce!

I am an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at the Anderson School of Management at UCLA.

I received my Ph.D. in the Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management department at Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.

Research Interests

My program of research addresses two key questions: How do gender inequalities in organizations and the labor market persist and perpetuate? How can we shift the status quo and disrupt these biases?

Specifically, I adopt a social perception lens to understand how stereotypes and biases contribute to and reify inequality, and how we can harness behavioral insights to correct these biases.
