Qing Gong

about me

My name is Qing Gong (龚青). I am a Ph.D. candidate in Organizational Behavior at Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Fascinated by complicated interpersonal interactions in today's dynamic workplace as well as how sparks for change emerge from them, I conduct research on how to develop, inspire, and connect people for innovative endeavors at work. My research primarily focuses on creativity, social cognition, workplace relationships, and deviance.
