David Dwertmann is an associate professor of management. He received his BSc and MSc in psychology from the University of Mannheim in Germany and his PhD in strategy and management from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.

David is interested in the social and cognitive processes that result in feelings of otherness and how to overcome them. He looked at otherness in the form of people with versus without disabilities, immigrants versus non-immigrants, different levels of status and hierarchy, and more. He is particularly interested in how social norms, organizational climate, and leadership influence these processes.

His work in these areas has been published in premier business journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, The Leadership Quarterly, Human Resource Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, and the Journal of Management among others. David has received local, national, and international awards for his work, including being named one of the world's Best 40-Under-40 business school professors by Poets & Quants in 2021.

David is currently serving as a member of the Editorial Board for Organizational Psychology Review and the Journal of Management.
