• Dr. Christine Shea is Professor of Technology and Operations Management at the Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire. Her current research examines how colleague bystander intervention can reduce the negative impact of bias incidents in the academic workplace. She obtained two National Science Foundation ADVANCE grants to conduct this research and is using her findings to create an online intervention guide and decision tool that will be available for use by faculty in 2020. She is former UNH Interim Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Inclusive Excellence and Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and Research at Paul College. Prior to earning her PhD from the University of Western Ontario, she worked for ten years and held various project and operations management positions in the aerospace industry. She has published on the topics of leadership and technological innovation in leading management journals including the Journal of Business Venturing, the Journal of Management, Leadership Quarterly, and the Journal of Business.
