Rosalind Chow is an Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior (without tenure) at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. She received her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Columbia University (2002), and her PhD in Organizational Behavior from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (2008).

Rosalind’s research focuses on how individuals understand and experience hierarchy. A base assumption underlying the research is that individuals seek to attain or maintain their own and their own group’s status, often in ways that exacerbate existing inequalities or that can hinder the effective performance of groups. This research has been published in major scholarly journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, and Psychological Science.

Rosalind’s teaching focuses on translating basic knowledge about human interactions into lessons for managers. She currently teaches courses on negotiations for master’s level students and an introductory seminar on organizational behavior for doctorate level students. Previously, she taught ethical leadership for master’s level students and introductory organizational behavior courses for undergraduates.

Aside from her academic career, Rosalind is an avid gardener, sewer, weight-lifter, traveler, and foodie.
