Gauri Subramani is an assistant professor in the Department of Management at Lehigh University. She received her B.A. from Wellesley College and Ph.D. from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Gauri studies the implications of representation on entrepreneurship and innovation. Her research quantifies the magnitude of gender and resource inequality in innovation contexts and identifies the mechanisms by which these arise, along with opportunities for interventions to reduce performance gaps. She uses empirical tools and quantitative analyses to explore the dynamics of representation in a variety of contexts, including the U.S. patent application system and digital platforms such as online reviews and crowdfunding.
Gauri’s research has received several awards and grants, including recognition as a finalist in the Organization Science/INFORMS Dissertation Proposal Competition, the Strategic Management Society’s Audience Choice Best Conference Paper, and support from Economists for Equity at Berkeley, The Center for Equity, Gender, and Leadership, and Facebook.
Prior to entering academia, Gauri worked as a consultant and as a political appointee in the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Economic Policy during the Obama Administration.
