Assistant Professor Jennifer Parlamis's academic career
has centered on pioneering social-psychological research in the
areas of negotiation, conflict resolution,communication, and
organization dynamics. Specifically, Prof. Parlamis studies the
impact of technology on negotiation outcomes and the role of anger
and incompetency emotions in negotiation and conflict contexts. In
addition, she has written on ageism in organizations as well as
Professor Parlamis employs the latest scholarly research to help
students acquire skills and increase their awareness of effective
interaction in business settings. Prof. Parlamis's classes
often require real-world projects in for-profit as well as
non-profit organizations in the Bay Area. She hopes that this
applied experience will encourage students to become more deeply
connected to the subject matter and more prepared to make the shift
from student to leader in their organization.

enjoys traveling, playing tennis, hiking on Mt. Tam, and spending
