I am a doctoral candidate at the department of Organisations & Innovation, School of Management, UCL. My research focuses on team leadership and creativity and how they involve an interplay between cognitive, situational, and behavioral factors. Specifically, my two primary research streams investigate (1) how network attributes of team leadership dynamics influence team effectiveness and creativity and (2) the processes by which creative collaborations unfold. My research incorporates quantitative and qualitative empirical methods, as well as pure theoretical development. My supervisor is Dr. Colin Fisher and Dr. Sarah Harvey.

Before UCL, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Zhejiang University and a Research Master’s degree in Business Administration (Human Resource Management) from Zhejiang University. I also attended the International Exchange Program at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam.

My research has been published in the Best Paper Proceedings of 79th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management and the edited volume Creative Leadership: Contexts and Prospects.
