Management of Organizations
Sa-kiera Tiarra Jolynn Hudson is an assistant professor in Management of Organizations at Berkeley Haas. She is interested in two broad research questions: What are the psychological and biological roots of power hierarchies, and how do these hierarchies intersect to influence experiences and perceptions? She received her BA in psychology and biology from Williams College and her PhD in social psychology from Harvard University. Before coming to Haas, she was an NSF postdoctoral fellow in psychology at Yale University.
