Aiwa Shirako joined New York University Stern School of Business as a Visiting Professor of Management and Organizations in September 2010. She teaches the course entitled "Management and Organizations."

Professor Shirako's research examines the intra- and interpersonal influence of status, power, and emotions. She is particularly interested in understanding how temporary psychological states (e.g. feeling powerful, feeling status, experiencing emotions) influence behavior, and how behavior (e.g. expressing emotions, behaving dominantly) in turn influences others perceptions and workplace outcomes. Her research appears in leading business and psychology journals, including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Psychological Science, as well as the edited volume Research in Managing Groups and Teams.

Professor Shirako received her B.A. in Psychology and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.
