Jeffrey M. Lees is a doctoral candidate studying Organizational Behavior & Psychology. His research interests relate to 1) How racial and gender diversity within organizations affects group behaviors and performance, 2) How group dynamics and social influences affect moral decision-making and moral cognition, and 3) How our perceptions of organizational entities affects our behaviors within those organizations.
Jeffrey favors a multi-method approach to studying psychological and social phenomenon within organizations. He has training not only in laboratory methods but experience conducting field experiments and collecting qualitative interview data. By utilizing multiple methods Jeff hopes to not only better understand psychological phenomenon in the real world, but also to speak to multiple scientific disciplines in the pursuit of actionable knowledge.
Before attending Harvard Jeffrey worked for three years as the Lab Manager of Columbia Business School's Behavioral Research Laboratory. He earned his B.A. in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Maine at Farmington and his M.A. in Social Science from the University of Chicago.
