Eva Lin

  • Programme: PhD in Organisational Behaviour
BSc (UC Berkeley),

MSc (London Business School)

Eva is a doctoral student in the Organisational Behaviour PhD programme at London Business School. Her research interests focus on topics related to organisational culture, mindsets, and intergroup relations. She is particularly interested in exploring these areas in the context of change, whether reactively driven by macro-environmental forces or proactively initiated within organisations. 

Originally from Taiwan, Eva has been navigating change and diversity ever since leaving her home country at the age of 12 and living independently across five continents. She was the youngest graduate of both the Haas School of Business’ undergraduate programme and the London Business School’s Masters in Finance programme. Eva also qualified as a Certified Public Accountant by the age of 20.

Prior to starting her PhD, Eva has a background in financial audit at PwC in Silicon Valley, customer & employee experience management at Medallia in London, and academic research in the Mindsets & Diversity Lab at LBS. Through her work with Fortune 500 companies, she became aware of many challenges faced by organisations across phases of growth and decline. She gained first-hand experience of the knowledge gaps prevalent in modern businesses, and found that these aligned closely with her academic research interests.

Eva is also a passionate volunteer with a focus on education. Her experience includes advising a musical theatre school in the UK on financial turnaround strategy, mentoring female entrepreneurs in emerging markets, and organising academic training programmes for students in preparation for higher education.

Outside of her work in academic research or volunteering, Eva enjoys improvising songs on her piano, exploring new cities without a map, and building her photography portfolio.
