Assistant Professor
Management of Organizations


Erica R. Bailey is an assistant professor in Management of Organizations at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley. She broadly studies the construct of authenticity, asking questions like, how do we know who we are? When do we feel the most like ourselves? Why do we often fail, despite our best efforts, to share our inner world with others?

Bailey received her PhD in Management from Columbia University and her BSBA with a specialization in Economics from The Ohio State University.
