Gavin J. Kilduff

Affiliated Associate Professor of Management and Organizations



Gavin J. Kilduff joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations in July 2010. He teaches courses entitled "Management and Organizations" and "Negotiation and Consensus Building".

Professor Kilduff's research focuses on three related topic areas: rivalry and competition, status dynamics in groups, and negotiations. Specifically, he examines how rivalries develop - among individuals, groups, and organizations - and how they affect competitive behavior and decision-making. Additionally, his work on status dynamics within groups examines how individuals achieve status and influence, as well as the group-level consequences of different kinds of hierarchical organization. Professor Kilduff has published his research in several of the leading management and psychology journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and Journal of Applied Psychology.

Professor Kilduff received a B.S. in Computer Science from Pennsylvania State University and a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.
