Tim Kundro

Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Kenan-Flagler Business School

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

My research focuses on the complexities of morality and ethics at work, investigating how employees respond to and manage (im)moral situations in the workplace.

I have partnered with a number of public, private, and federal organizations to conduct my research, which has been featured in outlets such as NPR, Forbes, Fast Company, and Slate. I have also served as an expert witness.

I completed my Ph.D. in Management (Organizational Behavior) at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and my Bachelors of Science in Psychology at Penn State. I previously served on the faculty at The University of Notre Dame.
