Rebecca (Becky) Schaumberg is an Assistant Professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where she teaches a course on negotiation. She uses social psychology and organizational behavior theory to understand the factors that promote and impede positive employee outcomes such as job performance, leadership, and effective decision-making. She is particularly interested in how these outcomes relate to self-conscious emotions (e.g., guilt), moral character, and self-reliance/autonomy.

Becky received her undergraduate degree from Carleton College and her PhD from Stanford University.  Prior to joining Wharton, she was an Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations at NYU Stern School of Business.
