Sherry Jueyu Wu
Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations and Behavioral Decision Making
Sherry Jueyu Wu’s work is concerned with group influence over long-lasting behavioral changes, and decision processes under resource disparity and social inequality. Her research in group dynamics has shown that changing a small facet of group life can lead to a change in a long-term behavioral pattern and in generalized attitudes. Overlapping with her research on behavioral change, she has investigated people’s decisions within and perceptions of inequality and scarcity.
