Research Interests

Patricia Satterstrom, Harvard College, A.B. '04, Harvard Business School, DBA '16 (expected), will join the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University, as an Assistant Professor in 2016.

My work on how individuals in teams collaborate despite power differences has been awarded the Harvard Business School Wyss Award for excellence in innovative dissertation research and the Susan G. Cohen Award for Doctoral Research. Before entering the doctoral program at Harvard Business School, I was a Research Associate, assisting with research and cases on globally distributed teams. I also worked as an Organizational Change consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton and as an intern at Insight Partners, a conflict management firm. I have taught undergraduates, MBAs, and executives at Harvard and abroad and have been awarded a Certificate of Distinction in Teaching from Harvard. During college, I was a student fellow at the Center for International Development and an intern at the Carr Center for Human Rights at the Kennedy School of Government. I also studied and worked in South Korea for a year on the Yenching fellowship.

I have a black belt in Taekwondo and enjoy spending time with my husband and son.
