Zoe completed her MSc Social and Organizational Psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2016. Before coming to London, she studied psychology at the University of Konstanz. To gain practical experience, she completed an internship in the marketing department at the Center for Creative Leadership in San Diego in 2013, followed by an internship in the department of career counselling at the Institute of Applied Psychology in Zurich in 2014. At both institutes, research and practice went hand in hand. During this time, Zoe gained a profound interest in systemic approaches. Since November 2016, Zoe holds a position as a research assistant and doctoral candidate at the Institute for Systemic Management and Public Governance at the University of St. Gallen.
Zoe is highly interested in motivation, learning and innovation processes as well as in leadership practices. For her master thesis, supervised by Prof. Saadi Lahlou, she conducted an explorative study to find out about the “good practices” of Replay Interviewers employing Subjective-Evidence-Based-Ethnography (SEBE). For her dissertation Zoe plans to use first-person-perspective recording to study challenges and resources during the implementation of a change initiative in the health care sector. With her research Zoe aims to contribute to the development of new learning and reflection tools for managers.
