Ashli Carter is a postdoctoral researcher in the Management and Organizations Department in the Stern School of Business. She holds a Ph.D. in Management from Columbia University and received her B.A. in Psychology with Honors from Stanford University.

Ashli studies how seeing the “forest” versus seeing the “trees” shapes three common workplace experiences: 1) how individuals respond to unexpected or unwanted outcomes, 2) the way individuals work with similar and dissimilar others, and 3) how individuals exchange information and ideas to reach group decisions. For example, she examines when managers should provide big picture explanations of why decisions are made versus more concrete explanations of how decisions are implemented in order to increase perceptions of fairness in the face of organizational change. Another area of her research investigates the consequences of considering diversity more as an abstract idea versus a concrete reality for individuals' attitudes towards, and choices to promote, diversity within the workplace. Ashli's academic work has appeared in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Making Processes, the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, Social and Personality Psychology Compass, and The Social Dynamics of Organizational Justice.
