Jackson Lu is the Mitsui Career Development Professor and an Associate Professor of Work and Organization Studies at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He studies culture and globalization through two distinctive research streams. His first research stream examines the “Bamboo Ceiling” experienced by Asians despite their educational and economic achievements in the United States. His second research stream elucidates how multicultural experiences (e.g., working abroad, intercultural friendships) shape outcomes key to organizations, including  leadership, creativity, and ethics.

Jackson has published in top general science journals (Nature Human Behaviour, PNAS), management journals (Academy of Management Annals, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science), and psychology journals (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science). His research has been featured in over 150 media outlets in different languages (e.g., BBC, The Economist, The Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, NPR, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Washington Post).

He has received prestigious awards and honors, including the 40 Best Business School Professors Under 40, the 30 Thinkers to Watch, and the NLS Rising Star Award from the Academy of Management.

Jackson received his PhD from Columbia Business School.
