Rice Business Wisdom Contributor
Siyu’s research focuses on the micro-foundations of groups and teams, with a particular focus on organizational structures, social networks, and intra-group processes. Specifically, she examines how individuals’ perceptions of hierarchy affect their performance outcomes, social network relations, behaviors, and decision-making at work, as well as the group-level consequences and cultural variations of hierarchy perceptions.
Siyu’s research also investigates various antecedents and consequences of conflict and competition in group processes. In carrying out her research, Siyu employs a variety of methods, including field, laboratory, and archival studies.
Siyu taught courses in Organizational Behavior and Power and Influence in Organizations in the undergraduate and MBA programs at Rice’s Jones School of Business. Siyu received a PhD in Management from NYU’s Stern School of Business, an MA in Sociology from UC Berkeley, and BAs in Economics and Sociology from Peking University.
