Dr. Meredith Woehler joined Portland State University in 2018. She received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from the University of Kentucky in 2017. Her research generally encompasses two primary themes: (1) individual differences, including gender and political skill, and (2) individuals’ abilities to agentically drive and handle change–from large organizational changes like mergers and acquisitions to more micro-changes, such as driving innovative changes in the workplace or changing in one's network of workplace relationships. Her work has appeared in premier journals such as Organization Science and the Journal of Applied Psychology.
In her role at Portland State, Meredith will be teaching a variety of management courses, including the organizational leadership course. She has previously taught courses on Organizational Network Analysis at Vanderbilt University and will be teaching a similar course for the HR Analytics Graduate Certificate here at PSU. In her free time, Meredith enjoys outdoor activities like rock climbing, camping, hiking, and kayaking.
