Ryan O. Miller

I am a third year Ph.D. Candidate studying Organizational Behaviour at Ivey Business School at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. My present research (focus of dissertation) seeks to shed light on why past research investigating the relation between gender diversity within corporate boards and desirable outcomes (financial, and elsewise [e.g., CSR]) has yielded conflicting results (some show gender diversity as an asset, some show it as a hindrance, and others show it exerts little effect). More specifically, I am investigating how gender diversity in middle-, and top-management teams may influence emergent states and processes, which I hypothesize may mediate the gender diversity to desirable outcome relation.

My previous research involvement has included employment interviews (and employment interview anxiety), perceptions of trust among virtual teams, as well as perceptions of underemployment. I am also an ambassador for the Center for Open Science - as an early-career researcher, I feel it is particularly important to become well-versed in open (and hopefully, replicable) scientific practice.
