Speaker's Bio

I am a fifth year doctoral student at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, and I study real-world use of robotics in skilled, collective work. I ask questions like: How are robots actually involved in work? What can we do with them that we couldn't before? What might we lose? What does all this mean for organizations? Before coming to MIT for my doctorate, I spent 9 years as a principal consultant in a firm of organizational psychologists. We specialized in helping teams discuss touchy topics productively. Before my career in management consulting, I was a high school calculus teacher and before that a (struggling) jazz guitarist.
