Kelly E. See joined New York University Stern School of Business as Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations in July 2006. Professor See’s research focuses on organizational behavior and psychological factors that influence decision making. She is particularly interested in the ways in which people react to and cope with uncertainty, the impact of fairness and power concerns on institutional decision making processes, and the organizational effects of goals. Her research appears in leading business and psychology journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Academy of Management Review, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, the Journal of Experimental Psychology, and Operations Research, as well as in the edited volume, Thinking: Psychological Perspectives on Reasoning, Judgment, and Decision Making.

Before joining NYU Stern, Professor See spent two years as a visiting faculty member at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. She has also worked extensively with executives as a feedback coach and instructor in the Leadership Program at Duke University. Prior to her academic career, she worked in Washington, DC as a consultant in the private sector and a research analyst at an environmental policy think tank.
