ASU- SFI Center Fellow
Anjali Bhatt is interested in how cultural diversity is generated or constrained in human organizational settings. Her current research investigates how cultural diversity is influenced by demographic flow across organizational boundaries, such as worker mobility or post-merger integration. To understand these processes, Anjali bridges sociological research with models from evolutionary biology and analyses from computational linguistics. By understanding the mechanisms underlying cultural diversity and change in organizations, she hopes to provide insights into the role of corporations in building diverse and inclusive communities and enabling cultural change around societal issues like sexual harassment and climate change.
Anjali completed her Ph.D in organizational behavior from Stanford Graduate School of Business and her A.B. in chemistry & physics from Harvard College. She has spent several years working as a social impact consultant.
