Andreea Gorbatai is an Assistant Professor in Management of Organizations area. She currently teaches Leading People in the evening MBA program at the Haas School of Business.
Professor Gorbatai’s research focuses on social mechanisms related to knowledge production and information sharing, and on the role of language and emotions in markets. Organizational theory research has examined the various social mechanisms and structures that play a role in knowledge diffusion, and the characteristics of this knowledge. However, the perspective of information as a public good and the unintended consequences of different modes of free knowledge production and sharing have been underexplored in our field.
Professor Gorbatai received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from the Harvard Business School, and was a finalist of the 2011 INFORMS / Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition. Prior to her doctorate degree, she received a Masters in Sociology from Harvard University, and an undergraduate degree in Economics and Sociology from Dartmouth College.
