Audrey L. Holm

I am a PhD Candidate in Management and Organizations at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. I will be joining the Management & Human Resources Department at HEC Paris as an Assistant Professor in the Fall of 2022.

I primarily adopt an ethnographic approach to reflect on how people experience and relate to their work, organizations and occupations.

My research focuses on inclusion and inequality and shifting work dynamics at the individual, relational and occupational levels. In my dissertation, I examine the work of counselors specialized in helping formerly incarcerated jobseekers.

I was a finalist in the INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition and for the Academy of Management's Louis Pondy Best Dissertation Paper Award, and was the recipient of Questrom’s 2020 Award for Outstanding Research by a Doctoral Student.

I hold a Master of Business Administration from ESSEC Business School in Paris, France. Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked as an operations manager, business development manager and consultant in the public transportation industry.
