Research

Dr. Case is an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

Dr. Case leverages theory from evolutionary biology and social psychology to uncover when, why, and how people’s deep-seated motivations cause them to behave in ways that either promote or undermine effective group functioning. In her current research, she examines how leaders navigate social dilemmas in which their own personal motivations – motivations for power, status, or social affiliation – come into conflict with one another or are at odds with important group goals.

Dr. Case received her BA in Psychology and Anthropology from Miami University and her MS and PhD in Social Psychology from Florida State University. While completing her PhD, she also served as a visiting research fellow at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
