Mojtaba Salem is a PhD Candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Maria Besiou (Kühne Logistics University), Prof. Dr. Niels Van Quaquebeke (Kühne Logistics University), and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Deller (Leuphana Universität Lüneburg) since December 2015. In his research, Mojtaba is interested in applying behavioral leadership theories in a humanitarian environment. More specifically, he seeks to examine the impact of humanitarian leaders on the performance of humanitarian development and relief aid operations.

Mojtaba completed his Bachelor program in Business Administration at the American University of Afghanistan where he graduated with highest honors (i.e., summa cum laude) and received outstanding student leader award. In 2013, he joined Kühne Logistics University (KLU) and completed the Master of Science Program in Management for which he received the KLU Best Student Award (Class of 2015). Highlighting the under-researched issues pertaining to intergroup relations between aid workers, his master thesis investigated the impact of leader boundary-spanning behaviors on leadership effectiveness in humanitarian organizations. Mojtaba has also gained valuable experience during his research internship with Hamburgisches WeltWirtschaftsInstitut. In April 2015, he became a research assistant at the KLU.
