Christina Bradley is a doctoral student in the Management & Organizations department at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business. She studies how emotions affect the way we think, feel, and behave in situations at work. She hopes her research will help individuals and organizations become curious about and skilled with handling emotions, primarily in relational contexts. Christina believes that understanding and developing the various skills of emotional intelligence can help individuals both perform better at work and live healthier, more meaningful lives.
