Biography

Guihyun Park is a Senior Lecturer of Management in the Research School of Management, Australian National University. She received Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology from Michigan State University. Prior to joining ANU, she worked as an Assistant Professor of Psychology in Singapore Management University for 8 years.

Dr. Park's research interests include how people react to team members’ ideas and contributions; how a team, which consists of individuals, develops its own dynamics; and how intergroup relations and intragroup dynamics co-evolve over time. To examine these often highly complex phenomena, her research adopts process-oriented, multilevel theoretical perspectives in which team dynamics are understood as emergent and reciprocal processes that originate from the interactions of constituent team members. In turn, these crystallize into team processes and outcomes. By gaining a deeper understanding of team dynamics, her ultimate goal is to discover ways to better manage the aspects and processes of teams so that teams and their members will be able to not only work more effectively but also experience personal and collective growth.

Her work has been published in leading journals such as Academy of Management Discoveries, American Psychologists, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.
