About

Xinxin is a PhD student in Organizational Behavior and Human Resources in the Department of Managerial Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Prior to her study in UIC, she had done research on ethical leadership and team dynamics for six years, and had obtained her PhD degree in China. During her study on leadership and teams, she gained insights on how leaders can facilitate intragroup cooperation and team performance through leading ethically and she became more interested in relationship between supervisors and the subordinates. Then, she shifted her research attention to the leader-member exchange and social exchange within a group and their associations with ethical leadership. In addition, in studying group dynamics and interactions, Xinxin also developed her interest in engagement at both individual and group level, and accumulated knowledge of how to facilitate employee engagement through interventions such as job redesign and team construction.
