Professional Summary

Alankrita Pandey received her PhD from the University of Texas at Arlington and has been working in Eastern Michigan University since 2013. Prior to EMU, Dr. Pandey was visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. She is a MAC ALDP Fellow for 2022-2023. She also directs the MSHROD in China Program.

Dr. Pandey is deeply interested in studying what makes employees work at workplaces- what makes them do their work, go over and beyond and sometimes even engage in counterproductive work behaviors. Her training was in Strategic HRM and her research has focused on the cross–level relationships between organizational policies, employee human capital, in-role and extra-role behaviors and role–relationships between employees and their peers. The Covid-19 crisis has got her more interested in the dynamics at workplaces- with respect to role-relationships and a deeper interest in employee well-being.

Dr. Pandey has also been involved in downsizing research. She co-edited the Cambridge University Press book "Downsizing: Is Less Still More?" Her research has been published in the Strategic Management Journal, the Journal of Management and the Journal of Managerial Issues. Dr. Pandey enjoys working with different statistical measures and techniques. She has worked extensively with colleagues in EMU and other institutions. She also likes mentoring student research.

Dr. Pandey comes from a family of educators. Her philosophy is “learning by doing” and she tries to incorporate practical applications of theoretical skills in her courses. She has taught extensively in the MSHROD program, teaching MGMT 509, MGMT610, MGMT 613, MGMT 621, MGMT 622, MGMT 628 and MGMT 638.  She also teaches MGMT 386 and MGMT 384 to undergraduate students. She enjoys interacting with her students and appreciates the perspectives they bring to her classes.
