Eliot Sherman is Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at the London Business School. He conducts research on inequality in the workplace, primarily with respect to gender. His work examining whether female managers influence the wage gap between their male and female subordinates was published in the American Journal of Sociology. Other projects investigate the effects of remote working on job performance and work-family conflict; the extent to which bureaucracy in organisations helps or hinders women's career advancement; and whether women's earnings improve when their husbands perform an increased share of childcare.
Dr. Sherman has worked as a research associate at Harvard Business School and as an investigative analyst for the AON Corporation. He holds a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and a PhD from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
