Julia Lee is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Management and Organizations Department at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business. She seeks to help employees navigate modern workplace challenges by exploring ways they can proactively tap into their relationships, reinterpret negative events, and change their implicit beliefs related to their goals. Her current work relates to how relational self-affirmation, by highlighting one’s contributions, can lead to positive outcomes. These results are measured at an individual level (stress resilience and creative performance), team level (information exchange and team performance), and organizational level (reduced burnout and turnover).
She received a PhD and an MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School, a BA in Political Science from Korea University, and was previously a Lab Fellow in the Institutional Corruption Program at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University.
