Doctoral Candidate, Management & Organizations

University of Michigan

Christina Bradley is a PhD candidate in the Management and Organization’s department at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. She conducts research on emotions within workplace social interactions. Christina’s research focuses on how responses to emotion expressions impact important workplace outcomes. She has introduced a theoretical framework to understand how best to respond to the emotions of others at work, which she has applied in her ensuing empirical projects across a variety of challenging work contexts, including conflicts, negotiations, and workplace hierarchies. Her most recent work begins to explore how individuals can express their emotions in ways that elicit more helpful responses to their emotions. Christina’s research has been published in the Academy of Management Annals and she has also published articles in popular press outlets such as the Harvard Business Review Magazine, Harvard Business Review, and MIT Sloan Management Review.

Prior to joining the Management & Organizations PhD program at Michigan Ross, Christina completed her undergraduate degree in psychology at Yale University. During and after graduation, she conducted research on emotions and emotional intelligence with both the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Contentment Foundation.
