Jennifer S.K. Dudley

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Columbia Business School, Management Division.

I study incivility and identity in politics and organizations. My research is often motivated by underlying questions such as "why do some people get to behave that way, but not others" and "do organizations change their members or do members change organizations."

My research uses innovative research methods, especially quantitative approaches. My research questions often seek the causal effect of a variable on an outcome. To answer such questions, I use experiments and computational analysis of longitudinal text data. 

I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from University of Notre Dame. I supported my dissertation research with the NSF/ASA Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant, the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy, and the ND Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts.
