Nishani Marcia Siriwardane

Nishani is a doctoral candidate in the strategy unit at HBS. Her research interests broadly involve understanding how cultural norms influence the types of human resource practices that firms choose to use and also how the human resource practices that firms utilize can impact both employees’ overall work experiences in addition to more firm level outcomes such as firm legitimacy and performance. She uses both qualitative and quantitative methodology in her research.

She received a B.S.E in Operations Research and Financial Engineering with High Honors from Princeton University. Following graduation, she worked as a fixed income trader, trading mortgage backed securities at Morgan Stanley and Agamas Capital Management.
