Jen Overbeck is an Associate Professor of Management at Melbourne Business School. She previously held academic positions at the David Eccles School of Business, University of Utah and the USC Marshall School of Business. Her research focuses on issues of power, status, hierarchy, and negotiations. Recent projects examine the active strategies that people use to manage their own and others’ hierarchical position in groups; how status affects the use of aggression; how culture moderates effects of threat on self-worth and behavior toward others; and how the use of silence affects negotiation outcomes. Her work has been published in journals including Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Social and Personality Psychology, Psychological Science, and Negotiation and Conflict Management Research. She edited the book Negotiation and Groups as part of the series Research on Managing Groups & Teams (series editors Margaret A. Neale and Elizabeth A. Mannix). Jen has served on the editorial boards of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Negotiation and Conflict Management Research, and as associate editor for Group Decision and Negotiation.
