Sasha Goodman received his Ph.D from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business in 2011. Goodman’s research focuses on power relations between private sector organizations and public sector institutions. His work examines why certain types of organizational communication with institutions improves organizational performance, while other types are less effective and can even be harmful. His other research on decision-making finds that competition can motivate people to inform the authorities on competitors for their job, when informing excludes the competitors from the job-market. He has been awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northeastern University. He works in Professor David Lazer’s lab to research hidden network ties between private and public organizations using disclosed records, and is helping build an online laboratory for examining interpersonal process in large groups.
