Michael is a postdoctoral research scholar and visiting assistant professor at NYU Stern School of Business. He received his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business in 2020 where he taught and conducted research in the Haas School of Business. His research focuses on two intersecting lines of inquiry. In the first line, he investigates how different forms of inequality (along lines of gender, race, power, status, economic, and socioeconomic status) impact judgments of others. In another line of research, he studies the bi-directional relation between political discourse (e.g., politically correct language) and impression formation.
