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 learning and leadership processes. Since November 2017, Zoe holds a position as a research assistant and doctoral candidate at the Chair of Strategic Management and Innovation at ETH Zurich.
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). In her current research, Zoe studies team learning in innovation teams. Her aim is to increase our understanding of the role of affect on learning as well as how to succesfully transfer and absorb knowledge in those teams.
