Bradford Baker

PhD Student in Organizational Behavior/Human Resource Management

Management & Organization
B.A., University of Washington, Seattle, Washington
Bradford began the program in Fall 2012. Bradford's primary research interests are in behavioral ethics and “dark side” studies. Specifically, he explores the unintentional negative consequences of pro-social behaviors and well-intentioned initiatives on both individuals and organizations. Additionally, he is interested in leadership, virtual teams, and gamification. Prior to pursuing his Ph.D., he worked in international development (primarily in sub-Saharan Africa) as a grant writer and managed the application process for over $100 million dollars in grants. He is personally motivated by the idea that business is a powerful tool for addressing inequality and promoting social justice.
