I obtained my PhD in Management Studies from the University of Liverpool.

In March 2023, I joined Huddersfield Business School, the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in Organisational Behaviour and Leadership. Prior to that, I had taught 'Leadership' and 'Global and Contemporary Human Resource Management' modules at Surrey International Institute, Dongbei University of Finance and Economics.

My research interest includes organizational behaviour, personality, leadership. Recently, I started investigating the impact of abusive supervision on knowledge sharing and knowledge hiding among employees, including not only the abused employees but also observers.

Co-PI in 2021 Humanities and Social Sciences Planning Fund Project, the Ministry of Education (21YJA630035) with Professor Jun Huang (Southwest University)
Project Title: Emotional impact and behavioural response of abusive supervision: a third-party perspective (职场辱虐管理的情绪影响与行为反应研究:基于第三方员工的视角)
