Profile

Sai is currently a final year doctoral candidate at the Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University), at the Department of Business-Society Management. She completed her MSc in Organisational and Social Psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with Distinction in 2017, and her MSc dissertation focused on unobtrusively analysing negative employee feedback to aid organisational learning in the National Health Service (NHS). Prior to her MSc, she completed her BA (Hons) Psychology degree (with a minor in English Literature) at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

Sai is an experimental social scientist by training, and her work has been invited for presentation at several international conferences, including the Academy of Management, European Group for Organization Studies, Strategic Management Society Conference, Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference, and the Positive Organizational Scholarship Conference.

In addition to research, Sai also teaches on a variety of courses at the Master's and Bachelor's levels, including Research Methods, Leadership, Sustainability, and Governance, and Sustainable Leadership and Planetary Boundaries. In addition, she supervises Master's thesis projects, on topics such as organizational practices (e.g. organizational decoupling), intrapersonal predispositions (e.g. justice sensitivity), corporate strategies (e.g. nudging, greenwashing), and new ways of working (e.g. social enterprises, digitalization).

She is a keen reader and writer, and often blogs about being-in-the-world.
