Danbee Chon

Stanford Graduate School of Business

I am a postdoctoral fellow of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. I received my Ph.D. in Management and Organizations from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. 

In my research, I examine three interrelated streams of inquiry: (1) how we define and measure self-awareness in organizations, (2) how our efforts to achieve and act on greater self-awareness can hinder or help us, and (3) how individual and structural characteristics of organizations contribute to misalignment between self- and other-perceptions. To investigate these questions, I take a multi-method approach using archival datasets, field and laboratory studies, and quantitative and qualitative research analyses.

I am currently on the 2023 - 2024 job market.
