ASU- SFI Center Fellow, starting at SFI July 2020
Starting in July 2020
Anjali Bhatt is currently a doctoral student in organizational behavior at Stanford Graduate School of Business and an incoming ASU Complexity Postdoctoral Fellow at SFI. She is broadly interested in how cultural diversity is generated or constrained in human organizational settings. Her current research investigates how cultural diversity is influenced by demographic flow across organizational boundaries, such as worker mobility or post-merger integration. To understand these processes, Anjali bridges sociological research with models from evolutionary biology and analyses from computational linguistics. By understanding the mechanisms underlying cultural diversity and change in organizations, she hopes to provide insights into the role of corporations in building diverse and inclusive communities and enabling cultural change around societal issues like sexual harassment and climate change.
Anjali received her A.B. in chemistry & physics from Harvard College and worked as a nonprofit consultant for several years prior to graduate school.
