Biography

Dr Ceren Erdem is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Organisational Behaviour at the Henley Business School. Before joining Henley Business School, Ceren pursued her PhD in Employment Relationships and Organisational Behaviour at London School of Economics.

Ceren's PhD research explored the coevolution of employees' social relationships and their psychological contracts. It focused on the socio-cognitive and behavioural mechanisms to explore the dynamic and ongoing interaction between the social and psychological aspects of work life. Ceren's research contributes to recent debates in the field and has the potential to be extended into several interdisciplinary subjects for future research.

Ceren has not only been involved in different academic work environments but also has industry experience in management consultancy at Deloitte and in production planning through internships while studying engineering as her undergraduate studies.

Ceren has been invited to many academic and professional conferences to present her research, such as the Academy of Management (AOM), Society for Industrial and Organisational Psychology (SIOP), British Academy of Management (BAM) and European Association for Work and Organisational Psychology (EAWOP) among others.

Ceren’s research interests include psychological contracts and employment relationship, as well as social networks, dynamic methodologies and experience of time at work. Ceren has taught at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in a number of areas including organisational behaviour, human resources, leadership and management.
