Tatem Burns


Tatem Burns is conducting her thesis on the distinct psychological experiences of negotiators in the context of gender and individual difference variables . Her research interests include how gender and individual differences influence negotiation, and how to inform intervention in these areas to improve employee experiences in negotiation and the workplace. In her spare time, Tatem can be found in the yoga studio, rollerblading along the Lake Front Trail, or challenging her cooking skills with a new recipe.
