Personal profile


My name is Dr Kara Ng (吳沚妍). I am a Presidential Fellow (tenure track) in Organisational Psychology. Prior to this, I worked at the Institute of Work Psychology at the University of Sheffield as a postdoctoral research associate. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am currently the academic lead for the Social Change and Inequalities theme of the Thomas Ashton Institute and a member of the Work and Equalities Institute.

My research seeks to understand why people do bad things at work. The main phenomenon I am interested in is workplace bullying and the role bystanders play in its development. I also study other forms of workplace deviance, such as incivility, abusive supervision, and counterproductive work behaviours. I am interested in using behavioural ethics to understand these phenomena. I have experience in intervention evaluation and am part of an mKTP grant developing and evaluating a team agility training programme.
