Catherine Tinsley, Ph.D.
Professor Tinsley studies how factors such as culture, reputations, negotiator mobility, and perceptions of fairness influence how people negotiate and how they manage conflict and has written about how macro features in the national context (trade policies, capital market structures) influence international negotiations. She evaluates how near miss events bias people’s decisions under risk, and how these biases might be eliminated. She examines the effects of diversity on group performance and how mentorship influences salary and career progression, as well as gender differences in these relationships. She also researches how and where U.S. based management theories do and do not translate across national cultures.
