Elena Wong is a fourth-year PhD student in Management and Organizations at the University of Arizona, Eller College of Management. Her research centers on employee wellbeing which she approaches from multi-level perspectives using various types of data including archival, survey, and qualitative. In her first stream of research, she focuses on the individual level of analysis, examining recovery activities and the interface between work and family through quantitative survey studies. In so doing, she highlights how activities outside of the workplace impact employee wellbeing and workplace behaviors. In her second stream of research, she conducts ethnographic observations and interviews aimed at the organizational level of analysis, exploring how organizational cultures shape employee wellbeing and organizational resilience in the face of adversity.
Elena’s work has been published in Journal of Vocational Behavior and Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives in Science and Practice. She has presented at the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology and International Conference on Social Dilemmas conferences. Prior to joining academia, she worked as a consultant in the healthcare industry. She earned a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Spanish for the Professions from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
