Dr. Tyree Mitchell completed his predoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and received his PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from DePaul University. His research focuses on group processes and intergroup relations in organizations, specifically within leadership, team, and negotiation contexts. His research has been funded by major funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), and has been published in high-impact peer-reviewed journals (e.g., Journal of Applied Psychology) and featured in popular press outlets (e.g., Forbes, Harvard Business Review). His new book with University of Toronto Press, Searching for Trust in the Global Economy, provides insight into the cultural similarities and differences that emerge during the process of deciding to trust potential business partners in different regions of the world. Dr. Mitchell has also worked on research and consulting projects for several major agencies, such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
