  • Biography
    Alice Guo is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Management at Eli Broad College of Business. Her research aims to understand how teams function and how individuals within teams behave, drawing from literatures and theories on leadership, conflict, and faultlines. She has published two papers in the Journal of Applied Psychology and currently has two manuscripts in the revision-and-resubmit stage in the Journal of Applied Psychology and the Organizational Development and Human Decision Processes. Additionally, a symposium that she co-chaired, including one of her manuscripts on power and status, received the Best Symposium award by the Organizational Behavior Division at the Academy of Management's Annual Meeting in 2017. 

    Alice teaches an undergraduate course in managing human resources and organizational behavior and has assisted faculty members with a variety of master-level courses, including negotiations, managing diversity in the workplace, and managing the learning organization. She also provides data analyses workshops (e.g., multilevel modeling, growth curve modeling) for doctoral students in Management and related areas (e.g., Human Resources and Industrial Relations, Industrial and Organizational Psychology) at Michigan State University. Alice frequently receives positive feedback regarding her teaching and communication styles from faculty and students of all levels.

    In her spare time, Alice enjoys traveling, yoga, sitcoms, reading, and hanging out with friends!

    Alice is graduating in May and will join Utah State University's 
    Jon M. Huntsman School of Business in the summer as a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Management.
