Dr. Katerina Gonzalez’s research and work interests lie within the field organizational behavior with a particular focus on the psychology of organizational change. In her research, she explores how and why people respond to, initiate, and manage change in their work lives. She is interested in how individuals can facilitate—or, equivalently, erode barriers to—positive change in their own lives, organizations, and communities.

In her research, she applies quantitative methods (e.g., surveys, experiments, meta-analytic techniques) to data obtained in the field, in the lab, and from archival datasets. Her research has appeared in journals such as Human Relations, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, and Personnel Psychology. She also serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science and the Methods Editor for the Management and Business Coordinating Group (MBCG) at the Campbell Collaboration.

She teaches courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in the areas of management and organizational behavior. Her courses blend theory and evidence-based management with real-world applications. Recently she helped design and launch the new Innovative Teaming course (SBS104), an experiential class required for first year students that combines team dynamics with design thinking and entrepreneurship.
