Curriculum Vitae , updated 01/2015


Marlo Raveendran's research interest is in the area of corporate strategy, with a particular focus on organization design. Specifically, she is interested in two major aspects: (a) the impact of prior interactions among employees on the choice and effectiveness of new organizational structures; and (b) the micro-foundations of organization design, such as the division of labor, coordination and interdependence. She approaches these topics using both large-sample analyses and behavioral lab experiments. She received her Ph.D. in strategy from London Business School.
