Kate Zipay is an assistant professor of management at the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business, and is a graduate of the management department at University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business.

Her research examines the influence of life outside of work (e.g., leisure, hobbies, side jobs, family situations, etc.) on work performance and well-being; the social and emotional outcomes of justice, fairness, and leniency in the workplace; and the unique role of nostalgia in cultivating employee resources and building relationships. Specifically, she considers how these aspects of work and non-work contribute to positive work relationships and the overall well-being of employees.

Her research has been published in Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. In addition to conducting research, Zipay serves as an ad hoc reviewer for several journals including Academy of Management Journal, Personnel Psychology, and Journal of Organizational Behavior and serves on the Making Connections committee for the OB division of the Academy of Management.

Kate’s interest in positive work relationships extends to her teaching pedagogy. She enjoys helping students understand the importance of organizational behavior and high quality relationships, and, ultimately, be prepared to make their future workplaces positive, healthy, and productive organizations.
