Lindie Liang is an Assistant Professor of OB/HRM in the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. She completed her PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology at the University of Waterloo.
Prior to joining Laurier, Lindie was an Assistant Professor at the School of Human Resources Management at York University.
Lindie's research interests can be broadly classified into three overlapping areas: leadership, workplace aggression, and emotions. In studying those areas of interest, a recurring theme of Lindie's research involves the application of motivational theories to develop an understanding of when and why employees behave in certain ways.
Lindie’s work has been published in various academic outlets, such as the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Negotiation and Conflict Management Research.
