Estelle Archibold
PhD Organizational Behavior, 2016 - Present

Estelle E. Archibold is currently a PhD Candidate in Organizational Behavior at Case WesternReserve University. Estelle’s research agenda includes applications of embodiment theory to phenomena in the workplace including conflict, cooperation and power. Estelle has applied mixed methods analyses through the use of qualitative methods (specifically, hermeneutic phenomenology and ethnography) and quantitative methods (including experimental design and multi-level analysis) to her study of these phenomena. Having had a thriving professional career in conflict transformation and reconciliation practices across sectors, Estelle draws particular insight from her experiences to study the role of social identity factors (such as age, gender, race and class) in negotiations and conflict in groups and organizations.
