Prof. Dr. Prisca Brosi

Associate Professor of Human Resource Management

Dr. Prisca Brosi is Associate Professor of Human Resource Management at the KLU. She studied industrial engineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Having finished her studies with a diploma in 2006, she worked for three years as a consultant for the Boston Consulting Group. Dr. Brosi did her Doctorate in 2012 directly followed by her Habilitation studies at the Technical University Munich. During this time, she has been a visiting researcher at the Hong Kong Polytechnical University and the New York University.

In her research, she mainly examines psychological theories in the context of human resource management in organizations. In one part of her research, she investigates how emotions influence leadership and performance in organizations. Thereby, she particularly examines how positive emotions influence relationships between leaders and followers as well as among peers. Examining how emotion expressions can help individuals to overcome stereotypes connects to the second part of her research, which focuses on how stereotypes influence recruiting, selection and evaluation processes in organizations. She especially examines how individuals and organizations can overcome unintended and dysfunctional consequences of stereotypes. Also shedding light on stereotypes at the background of the digitalization leads to the third part of her research, in which she focuses on the future of work and organizations in light of the digital transformation. Results of her research were published in international outlets such as Journal of Applied Psychology, Human Resource Management, and Journal of Business Ethics. She also serves in the editorial board of the Journal of Organizational Behavior.

Her teaching at the KLU covers Human Resource Management. She teaches at the student and the executive level. Further, she connects with organizations in joint research projects.
