Doctoral Student

Elizabeth Joyce Baily

Lizzie Baily Wolf is a doctoral candidate in the Organizational Behavior Unit at the Harvard Business School. Coming from a social psychology background, Lizzie investigates issues around emotion, gender, nonverbal behavior, and interpersonal feedback at work. Lizzie's current projects focus on how people can manage impressions of their distress at work by reframing their emotion as passion, how men are stereotyped as "cultural ideals" across cultures, and how people look differently at individuals who engage in nonverbal displays of dominance vs. submissiveness. In her dissertation, she is exploring how evaluators' emotional expressions can convey performance feedback in evaluative contexts, and how this interpersonal feedback can influence the decisions and behavior of those whom they evaluate. Lizzie received her BA summa cum laude with honors from Connecticut College, where she double majored in Psychology and Hispanic Studies and received her CISLA certificate in International Studies.
